Thanks everyone. I haven't enhanced the colour but I did drop the brightness and increase contrast. THat improves colour saturation.BTW yew berries are the only part of the tree that are not deadly poisonous are the berries but the seeds extremely poisonous. It would be a case of yu... croak!

Thanks everyone for your comments
Great shot and lovely plant. Are they hard to grow? Happy WW
I really like your photo. You've been posting some really great ones lately. That makes it more fun for me when I come visit. ;)
Great photo, as always.
That is the coolest plant photograph I have ever seen. You always have the best pictures!
Hi jams,You did well with this one. It is a nice feeling to grow something and then photograph it.We can't plant this anymore around here because the deer will break down fences to get at it and then it takes a long time to fill back in.
No matter how much artists try to create a work of beauty, they can never better the visual richness of nature. Very nice photo.Beaman's Bazaar
gorgeous photo... love the color!
that brings back memories. my siblings and i used to mash up those berries that grew in our yard to make "jelly." ;)wonderful capture!hope you had a nice halloween!
It's weird all the sources that claim yew berry is deadly poisonous. We have several yews and I'll eat a few berries each year. They are a bit slimy, sweet but astringent. I don't swallow the seeds though, which apparently is the most dangerous part. I've never had ill effects, but I also don't really feel like eating many of them.
