Thanks Chuck. It was shot in deep shade of just after sunrise, before the light arrived in the berry patch. I hope they can stay on the bush long enough to ripen. The deer love them, and I can tell by the tracks that they're keeping a close eye on the patch's progress.
When I was a kid my grandparents would often take me with them when they vacationed on Block Island, part of Rhode Island in the Atlantic. Every day we would go for a walk and since the island is small it was pretty much the same walk, partly along a road they had named "blackberry road" although I think it had an actual name. Obviously we called it blackberry road because the road was lined with blackberry bushes, and as we strolled along we looked for the ripe blackberries and et 'em. I don't know if they were on private property but no one ever challenged us, and we really didn't eat too many, and most weren't ripe anyway. :D
Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

I love Block Island. I've only been once and the blackberry bushes were blooming along with wild roses and a riot of other wildflowers. It smelled like paradise.
