Berries galore

Blackthorn Prunus spinosa
If you don't like berries then look away now. Jokes apart, here's a post about berry-bearing bushes I photographed this autumn on the Karst and around Slovenia. Most are widespread species which are easily found in this season. Now I know why berries seem so irresistible to birds... such a nice variety and probably also many different tastes.
