Cherry red. by dreams

Cherry red.

One of the cherry trees (Lapis) had provided many cherries and they are getting bigger everyday. I noticed that something is munching away on the leaves, they look like swiss cheese!!! I am yet to catch what it is, but whatever it is, so far, its leaving the cherries alone.
Nice framing

You do have a nice lot of cherries on there. Not sure about those leaves.

Great lighting and focus. The leaves make me think of the book, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". I've never seen such perfectly eaten circles, only in books.

The cherries look very tempting and it's hard to understand why something is eating the leaves and not the fruit. Nice shot!

Very red!! those are cherry circles, as opposed to crop circles, made by very small alien craft landing... :-)

Lovely contrast of red and green. I've seen those bite marks around our yard too but have no idea who is doing it.

@abhijit @tesssa Thankyou both for your comments. Im not sure why one tree got cherries and not the other and most are only small, but it is still exciting.
@kwind Ha ha, Kim I totally agree with you about the hungry caterpillar. They are so nicely rounded, but it remains a mystery.
@quietpurplehaze Thanks Hazel, Im glad they are not eating the cherries. I have picked most a little early just in case but hope these few will fatten up nicely.
@fannyb Yes I have been told how lucky I am....maybe it is due to those two kitties I own.
@ssimon Ha ha...for a minute there I thought you really knew what you were talking about. Ok, Cherry circles they are, for now that is, until we find out what is really doing it.
@bardejov Well let me know if you find out what is attacking yours so I can keep a lookout also.

Lovely. I like the processing. Looks like someone used a hole punch on the leaves :)

@cheeks @evahenriette @daguerre Thanks, unfortunately when I came home today...they are all GONE!!!! I think I had done pretty well to keep them for that long without a net, but was hoping the last few would fatten and ripen perfectly. Well it would seem maybe they had and the birds got to enjoy them and not me...all they left were the seeds on the ground. :(
