Wild Strawberry

These flowers will turn into tiny strawberries. When I was a kid, I used to lie down in the lawn and eat them. They are a little sour, but there's something about eating fresh berries!

...I never ate the tiny little wild strawberries, but I used to pick them for my dolls! Now I have real strawberries growing wild, but they are no where near blooming yet. Love you close-ups!

You are so right .... nothing like being able to pick something and eat it straight away. :) Lovely shots Steve. Cute little bee too. :)

Hi Steve,
I used to do that too when I was a kid. For me, these strawberries were like little treasure that the forest could give us during our many plays around! Nice you got a bee on it too!

We have a similar little wild strawberry here Steve. Lovely little flowers and I thinks ours are OK and sweet to eat, once ripened.

Thses are great shots. I see them all over the place here and they are run like crazy over taking other plants. I never thought to take any closeups of them. I have been seeing red berries already. Helen

Perfectly timed shots to get details in the bees.

There is absolutely nothing that toutches th wild strawberry for flavour and aroma. Garden strawberries by comparson are like a croaking frog to Luciano Pavarotti's golden tones. You probably ate them before they were ripe. Lovely macro shot.

Beautiful macro and as usual the exposure is spot on.

I miss the Strawberries we used to grow in our backyard. So delicious on a warm early Summer day!

Love the photos! Nice shot of that bee. I would eat any wild berries I came across when I was small. I mean the good ones of course! There's a lot of wild blackberries up in back on the hill but I can't get to them. But the birds love them!

oh yes, these and the wild raspberries that came later were a childhood favorite! beautiful macros, Steve!
