Sunday Stills: The Color Red

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was the color red.

Red Baneberry

This is Red Baneberry or Actaea rubra,  the white flower in spring leads to these red berries in July.  They are poisonous berries that won’t kill you, but you will be awfully sick and wish you were dead.  I found these at Itasca State Park.

Have a great week everyone:)
