Fantastic. Your forest is a wonderland of beautiful flora. Never heard of a Serviceberry. What looks like a bud is actually a berry.
Serviceberry is a small tree. The 'lanterns' are the leaves opening; this species typically has the reddy to purple colouring. The flowers are white and the berries come later in the summer, somewhat resembling blueberries.
Awesome. Damn, you are not just a pretty face but very smart as well. I love those qualities in a man!
Thank you for your kind words, Ginger Mickey.
At first glance, I though a bunch of butterflies were on the branches. Still a pretty fantastic shot.
Butterflies eh, if only they would sit as still as the leaves.
