Had a crop of passion flower fruits this year (haven't tried to eat any yet)

Thanks, Dawg. The lens on the second and third was the Tamron 70-300 LD Macro; the first two on the K10D and the last (some weeks later) on the K100D with fill flash. The first I think was the Sigma 24-135 (EXIF reads 55mm/82 equivalent, too short for the Tamron) -- too long ago to remember for ceertain, but I had that lens mounted on the camera until recently.

I always think that the passion flowers look so unlikely. These are very nice. What's eating the fruit?

Thanks, Harriet. I have no idea who the culprit is.

Hey Penolta,
Those flowers are gorgeous!
I hear the fruit is good but, I've never tried any.:-?

I've never seen those flowers before. They are lovely.

You'll have to grab one of the fruit before whatever's eating it and try it.

The flower on these is simply beautiful. I hadn't seen those before.
