[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken on the day I made a nice walk at the dunes of Oostvoorne. I came across this Hippophae rhamnoides.
Here's some info from Wikipedia:

The sea-buckthorns, also known as seaberry, are deciduous shrubs in the genus Hippophae, family Elaeagnaceae. The name sea-buckthorn, hyphenated
here to avoid confusion with the buckthorns (Rhamnus, family Rhamnaceae), is also often given as "sea buckthorn" or "seabuckthorn"; likewise, seaberry
sometimes also as sea berry. There are three species, native over a wide area across Europe and Asia. They reach 0.5-6 m tall, rarely up to 18 m in
central Asia, and typically occur in dry, sandy areas. They are tolerant of salt in the air and soil, but demand full sunlight for good growth and
cannot tolerate shady conditions near larger trees.

The Common Sea-buckthorn Hippophae rhamnoides is by far the most widespread, with a range extending from the Atlantic coasts of Europe right across to
northwestern China. In western Europe, it is largely confined to sea coasts where salt spray off the sea prevents other larger plants from out-competing
it, but in central Asia it is more widespread in dry semi-desert sites where other plants cannot survive the dry conditions; in central Europe and Asia
it also occurs as a subalpine shrub above tree-line in mountains, and other sunny areas such as river banks.

Hi Nel,
It is possible that he is not Sorbus aucuparia? can be Hippophae rhamnoides?
Salutacions cordials.

Bonjour Nel,
très belle image de ce fruit.
Les couleurs sont belles, les détails fins. Belle profondeur de champs donnant un arrière plan discret.
Belle composition
Moustique ;o)
