Not sure what type of berry bushes these are but they were definitely beautiful while I was exploring in Red Deer, Alberta at the Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary…
Not quite ripe berries…
The little white fruits of the Snowberry bush is mildly toxic, especially to children and pets. Sorry no taste-testing these guys!
The day was nearly over when I was taking these pictures and made the berries almost seem luminescent.
Their hollow stems used to be used as whistles, but the stems are mildly toxic as well.
These were growing under some Cottonwoods and the leaf litter was quite pretty too…
The cold, crisp mountain air combined with the sweet smell of autumn leaves is one of my favorites. I think I could stand there for several hours and just inhale deeply…
