Poison Ivy Berries

Swamp-green and grinchy poison ivy berries. Just before snapping the shutter, out of habit I muttered "smile." Cold and grim and bereft of leaves, they cling to their stems all Winter. Yellow-bellied sapsuckers eat them, as do migrating birds. Many plants remind me of architecture. This could be a communications tower bedecked with mirrored metallic glass office spheres in Toronto.
