first blossom of thornless blackberry bush in our garden

Rubus fruticosus blackberry - thornless blackberries, just like traditional blackberry plants, are members of the rose family of perennial bramble plants. Like traditional blackberries, thornless blackberries come in trailing, semi-erect and erect cultivars.

The only differences between thornless and traditional blackberries are that thornless varieties tend to have sweeter, juicier, bigger fruits and are more cold hardy. All blackberries are high in anti-oxidants, contain anti-carcinogenic nutrients, and are high in vitamins, A,C, E and K as well as foliate, magnesium, calcium and potassium.

Bom dia Tsilla,
Great post MF, a superb white flower adorned by fantastic green center and polinias, and had the added two wonderful bonus of a button about to open and a pretty and brilliant beetle.

Hi Tsilla.

Stunning clarity with this macro, the fronds are alive, somewhat like Madusas'Head. I like the composition with the unopened and the ladybird. You done well with the harsh light. TFS

Hi Tsilla,
A beautiful presentation of this first blossom of thornless blackberry bush in your garden,
Excellent sharpness DOF.,contrast and light,
Amazing 'Ladybird' colors and tone.

White is always a challenge (for me) to get in original colors and you managed it very well, Tsilla!

Good focus and perfect details at the heart of the flowers.
The contrast against the green leaves is amazing, and a well positioned ladybird is a clear bonus.
Well done!


Hello Tsilla, the flower has really been magnified in this lovely sharp shot.
You managed the light really well,no OE at all.
You were lucky to get a ladybird in shot,and I see that it has no spots!
A good bokeh complements the flower.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Boa tarde Tsilla,

Lovely and delicate white flower!
Excellent work with beautiful colors, great light and sharpness.
Parabéns e shalom.

(*) I did a WS and hope you don't mind.

I like the lady bird in the lower right corner of this first blossom of thornless blackberry bush image from your garden. Nice POV and good exposure management. I like the shallow focus. Good work.

Hi Tsilla,

A good exposure on the white highlights with negligible oe. Superb sharpness & nice use of a narrow dof. I like the diffused light & close up view. Tfs!

Wow! Beautiful! Nicely captured with good dof and sharp details. Wonderful colors and good framing. Well done, tfs.
