Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

The vine with the tender grape give a good smell... Song of Solomon 2: 13

My first plan today was to take a self portrait with some Blood Root Wild flowers I found growing but thought the wild grape vine looked more interesting...A funny story regarding this self portrait is that I smelled something rotten like some wild animal in the woods had died around this grape vine. The odor followed me inside the house...the bottom of my shoe apparently made contact with whatever I stepped in:) I think I can still smell it and unfortunately it is not the sweet smell of grapes, quoted in the
scripture verse.

    These vines can be quite amazing...here they grow as big as smaller trees and suffocate the trees themselves. I tend to wander through the woods with loppers looking to cut them away.

    Thank you all for your kind words... we don't have that many of these vines, here Nelson but I am glad we don't when I hear your story of how big they grow and the damage they do to smaller trees.
