Macro Monday - Bittersweet Nightshade

These tiny, delicate flowers (just wider than a fingertip) turn into translucent red berries in the fall. The berries are a favorite of birds but poisonous to humans.

Thank you, Jenny! I have many saved for this winter to help remind me why I live here in Wisconsin.
