Exocarpos cupressiformis - fruit - 25 April 2015 - Alan Moore - low res

Native Cherry fruit

Alan helps with our research of local flora and fauna, however, I think this has been the most challenging assignment yet.

Just finding suitable flowers to photograph on the Native Cherry Exocarpos cupressiformis required the use of a magnifying glass.

Smaller than a pin head this surely has to be Australia’s smallest flower. Now the challenge is the find how these tiny flowers are pollinated so they create tasty bushfood  fruit.
