I found the flora in my Berries piece in the big, back garden at the museum.  I had noticed some small flowers (and even considered several different compositions featuring them) on this bush earlier in the year.  Perhaps this is what they became.  At any rate, I loved the purple and blue colors and their vertical pattern.  My vision was to capture the way the stems artistically bring the berries up and out into the frame as well as their combined design.  This is another example of a very long exposure (especially for macro) where a full ten seconds of shutter time was used.  Surface textures can be seen on the berries and the stems.
