Spidery

Such a cool looking plant at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
You're up late. Very odd plant.

@socalgal @rockinrobyn - Thank you, Patty and Robyn. And, it was one of those lucky moments in that this was at my eye level so I didn't have to do any tippy toe standing, or bending at odd angles. Always nice to be comfortable when making the shot.

Almost looks like a spider, interesting shot.

@tthompsonca - Thanks, Terri. It's such a combo to me. Leaves almost look like holly leaves, but the red stalks are so interesting. Oh, it bears a blue fruit too. Very odd.

Not bad. I am not sure the subject lends itself to such a shallow DOF as I would of liked to see all of the red bits in focus. Good example though.

@agima - Thanks Brendan. Yeah, it's a sort of subjective thing about liking them all in focus or not. I like the oof bits as it seems to lend a bit of depth to the image, I think. Thanks for taking the time for feedback. Always appreciated.
