interesting shot! A half eaten something, looks very exotic.
I thought it might be interesting as a photographic subject. I always try to find something new and different for Silent Sunday.It's a rosehip so not quite exotic ;DThanks for your visit and comment. Have a great week ahead.
I cannot decide if the shot fascinates me or frightens me (the seeds look a little like mini teeth). x
I had the same feelings with this shot ;DI wasn't even sure whether to post it, but then thought it'll be a talking piece if nothing else. I thought the seeds looked like teeth too.Thanks for stopping by to leave a lovely comment that made me smile. I hope the week ahead is a good one for you. Enjoy!
I was thinking same as Sarah they look like little teeth and are rather scary. But the colours and plants in background look lovely with the sun.
I've got a few different shots of these fruits in various stages of ripeness Nicola. The one I've posted was the ripest and obviously the most tastiest! ;DBut I have to admit I was bothered about those teeth! heheThanks for your visit and comment. Have a great week
Yikes!! Scary monster! Lol. What a fabulous photograph Denise, bravo!! Enjoy your Sunday :o) ((hugs)) xo
I was driving out of the supermarket car park when I spotted the rose hips. Re-parking, I jumped out to snap some shots. I've got them in various stages of ripeness but the one I've posted was the ripest and obviously someone knew it ;DI have to admit I wasn't sure whether to post it or not, but I knew that it would cause comments if nothing else. I hope you've had a lovely weekend and have a fun packed week ahead.
Have to admit I'm with Sarah and Nikki, this is bizarrely disturbing! Great shot though, very interesting x
Well I thought it would cause some interesting comments Sara, I always like to try to find something different or unusual for my Silent Sunday post.I didn't particularly like it either but the I was pleased with the detail. Thanks for visiting and I'm sorry that I disturbed you (;D)I hope you have a great week ahead.
Is that the inside of a chilli? It looks so intricate and the red is brilliant.
No sorry Tas, it's not a chilli... it was a rose hip.The rose hip, also known as rose haw or rose hep, is the fruit of the rose plant, that typically is red-to-orange, but ranges from dark purple to black in some species.I've read since taking the photo, that the syrup from the rose hip keeps well in the fridge. It is especially good on pancakes or to sweeten teas too. Thanks for stopping by my place and I wish you a great week ahead.
Some over ripe fruit! Great focus and wonderful colours, even if the image somehow has darker undertones!
It was a very strange image to post John I have to admit, but when I looked at the detail and colours I thought it would make a great Silent Sunday entry. I always like to try to find something interesting or different for my entry.Thanks for your great comment.I hope you've had a great weekend and the week ahead is a good one.
Very cool pic! Aliens are hatching...eeek
It does look a little like that doesn't it Nan,I wasn't sure I'd post the photo, but I liked all the gruesome details and colours so thought I would. I knew it would cause some comments (hehe)Great to see you... I hope you've had a great weekend and next week is even better
A great macro shot! Who had here a breakfast?Have a nice sunday
I'm not sure who had breakfast Mascha but it looks like they enjoyed it and they're possibly healthier for it.Thanks for your lovely comment and visit... I had a great Sunday and I hope you have a fabulous fun packed week ahead.
I don't know what that is, but I love the colour and the detail.
It's a rose hip Sarah, A very ripe (scary) half eaten one ;DHere's a few facts about the rose hip...It is the fruit of a rose. The wild dog rose is the type of rose most often cultivated for their hips. This plant grows up to ten feet tall and bears a white, very fragrant flower. Once the flower has bloomed, and all the petals have fallen off, the hip is picked and used in a wide variety of preparations. Rose hips are the best source of vitamin C; they contain 50% more vitamin C than oranges. A single tablespoon of the pulp gives an adult more than the recommended daily allowance of 60 mg. They can be eaten raw, after being put through a blender, or soaked in water overnight and then cooked in the water for about half an hour. Because of the high vitamin C content they are an excellent immune system booster, and are often used as a supplement to prevent or treat a cold. The pulp from rose hips may be used in sauces or made into jelly.Rose hip keeps well in the fridge. It is especially good on pancakes or to sweeten teas too. Thanks so much for your visit and comment. Have a great week
Great details and unusual shot. Bit creepy like the others say!
Yeah... I have to agree Emma, I was bothered about posting the photo but then it was so unusual and I liked all of the details and colours that I thought it would be good for Silent Sunday.Thanks for your comment... it made me smile ;DHave a great week

Very unusual.....There is so much detail though x
I couldn't believe it when I zoomed in closer Kim. That's what I love about looking at nature... if you look closely there's always more to see than you first thought. Thanks for your visit. Have a great week
Love the detail on this, someone's been eating itThank you for linking up
Someone certainly has been eating it and by the look of it had a fine feast!Thanks for hosting Darren... I love this linky. I always try to find something unusual to post for it and this week I knew I was onto a winner.
Great shot, I wonder what sort of fruit it is!
Thanks... it's the rose hipI've been finding out lots of facts about rose hips before posting which has been really interesting. That's what I love about blogging... you never know where it will lead.I hope you had a great weekend and that your week is even better.
Rosehips are a great Autumn fruit, great picture love the colours.
Thanks Jane,I took quite a few photos of the various stages of the fruit but thought this one was the most interesting and colourful ;DThanks for stopping by. I hope you're having a great week.
Wow! The clarity of the shot is superb & the colours are just bursting. Looks like the start of autumn is coming as our fruit gets nibbled on trees. Lovely shot #sundayphoto
