Spring in the woods

Tiny bugs are busy on this flower.
The berry is just starting to form at the center of this one.

The salmon berry is unusual in that it has a bright pink flower. Seems like most other berries have white or pale pink ones. The color of the berries is usually orange, but can be on the red side if they get sun (since it tends to grow in dense woods that is an anomaly). It’s called “salmon berry” because the orange berries look like a cluster of salmon roe. It is kind of watery and doesn’t have a strong flavor, either sweet or tart, compared with thimble-berries, huckleberries or blackberries.
