The homeland of blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum L.), is North America. The Indians believed that bilberry was sent to them by the Great Spirit and surrounded me respect. Today, bilberry conquers the world for its health properties. Each fruit is almost an inch pharmacy: vitamins C, A, B1, B2, PP and mineral salts.In addition, blueberries have a protective effect against cancer, heart disease, strokes. Exhibit inhibitory effects on aging processes, are a source of folic acid needed for proper fetal development. It was noted the link between regular consumption of blueberries and improve eyesight, fruits are recommended for those who work long at the computer.Blueberry is suitable for dairy, frozen food to fruit salads. Her taste perfectly underlines the vanilla and lemon juice. The blueberry has a long life, bears fruit annually for 20 years and more. Yield in the sixth year after planting is at least 5 kg. from one plant. In the second year after planting can be from one bush to collect 0.5 kg. fruit.Highbush blueberry plants are self-pollinating, but pollination with pollen from another variety increases the yield of fruit, so it is preferred to plant two different varieties.

Idealny strzał mikro-makro. Super żywe detale - chce się dotykać, jeść, a właściwie bardziej oglądać, aby ich nie zniszczyć. Wszystko super

A perfect capture of these berries. I was going to say that it seems like the season is over but I see that the picture was taken some weeks ago. A marvellous sharpness! Funny that all the berries are not ripe at the same time.

I love blueberries and unfortunately we don't grow them in Brazil! Nowadays, we can find them here for sale, but not as fresh as we can find in the northern hemisphere!
The picture is wonderful, with superb sharpness, exposure and colors!
TFS - congrats,

przed chwila widzialem u kogos zblizenie winogron a teraz blueberries. To jest o wiele bardziej oryginalne tak rzadko pokazywane a takie piekne.
Na pierwszy rzut oka poczulem juz wydzielanie sie sliny...
Piekne naturalne kolory. Ladna gra z glebia ostrosci. Trudne ale doskonale wykorzystane swiatlo.
Gratulacje! Bardzo mi sie to podoba!

The shaded background gives depth.

The close up on the berries make them looking big! The blurred greenery makes for a good BG on which the fruits stand out well in a fine sharpness.

I like the exptreme close up giving the berries a huge size. The blurred background makes them appear almost 3D!

A fruit not very common in my country. I did not expect so blue a colour! Good closeup of the berries with good focus & the background OOF. A very informative note as well!
