Beautiful red. And great use of DoF.
Charles Dastodd: thank you. as I am new to the DSLR I had a very hard time getting it to focus on the right spot - there were so many other little branches that kept getting in the way

Nicely composed - and good bokeh!
Charles Dastodd: Thanks, Tom!
Lovely colors.

Would these berries edible for the birds, Charles?
Charles Dastodd: I have no idea! This was in a decorative Japanese garden, so I suspect the plant was chosen only for its ornamental value but they very well could be.

I am so happy to get to see this without getting my fingers and nose frozen. It's beautiful.
