Last but not forgotten

Last Cherry.  Nikon D200
6th August 2015

The pigeons hit the cherry blossom hard earlier in the year, limiting what fruit was left to develop; the blackbirds then pecked out any red bits that developed on the young fruit; then the blackfly sucked the life out of the what was left.

Here is the last cherry left for me; pecked clean to the stone and then sucked dry.    I can net the tree to stop the birds, but it will need to be a very fine mesh to stop the blackfly.
