Fruit of American strawberry bush (http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/189...). Most of the leaves had been stripped at this point, presumably by deer. The seeds are usually orange, but this plant had much redder seeds.
Edges of moist woods.

Thank you, MayraSpringmann.
Wow! Great capture!
Thank you all very much. This is one of those plants that makes me happy every time I see one.
Interesting. Never saw one before.
Very strange looking!
WOW what amazing colors!
It almost looks as if there should be a cherry on the end of that stalk not such a beautiful flower/fruit
YukoChartaw and Hemma, thanks for the kind comments. Another nickname for this plant is "Hearts bursting with love," and I think the picture really shows why.
great pic! Red seeds do not photograph this well,ususally!
Very colorful and beautiful!
