Lots of texture here between the berries, the leaves, the mulch and the rotting bark - just another example of the great diversity in our environment! This American beautyberry is aptly named and adds a nice splash of color amidst the typical green landscape this time of year! The sunshine's warmth radiates through the image...and the high temperatures have all of the critters (humans, too!) seeking shade. 3rd St S & 5th Ave N, Naples, FL


  1. Very nice. I really like the texture on the leaves. And the color and contrast. And the curving bark on the right. It all works together and keeps the eye moving. Cool shot!
