Just a snap of one of my colleagues, and probably the best plant ecologist in the
Netherlands, today on a bramble excursion.

I like it a lot. Love his hat, love the way he bends over to scrutinize. Bramble lane, I have one close by, wild clematis in abundance there aswell. The brambles blossomed both white and darkish pink. The berries are ripening now. Squirrels live there too. Even though the highway is very close, it is beautiful over there. Thanks for the picture.

Yeah, of course! Wanted to ask you where you live, and where I can find brambles with clematis... It's an existing combi, but not at the Veluwe, I believe.... (but I know one place in the vicinity of Doorwerth, along the river Rhine, at the foot of the ice pushed ridge - it's Veluwe, but it's its' outermost border....)

Darkish pink brambles? Near Oldebroek, perhaps? At least northern Veluwe???

Apeldoorn. Pinkish brambles in "Het Woudhuis". There is an abundance of wild flowers there aswell in a rather humid wild meadow surrounding. Cultivated woodland, though drying out. Such a pity. Despite attempt to regulate the groundwaterlevel it now is too low most of the time. The pinkish color is seen at at more spots around Apeldoorn.
My garden doesn't count, of course, but I have an enormous Himalyan type bramble there in my pear tree (Conference). The Himalayan is maybe a tad bit pinkisher, but realy only a bit. Well, unfortunetly I have clematis there: Vitalba. That is a monster.
Woudhuis is so incredible beautiful, it is. So small, but such variations.

This is a great shot Rense. Interesting that you shot this at 800 ISO. Did you shoot this on TAV mode. JIM

Perfect shot of the "scientist". I've seen the same look on my fellow chemists as a result attracted their curiosity and interest.

Ah, thank you! Must be Rubus sprengelii, it's found abundantly in those surroundings!
