Macro Monday – Red lantern ( taxus baccata fruits)

The Yew (taxus baccata), is one of the most dangerous trees in the world.

Except for fruit, the whole tree is toxic.

In Romania, the yew was a tree with a wide spread, but due to the precious wood and the poisonous leaves (taxina) the yew was exterminated, so that at present it is declared a monument of nature. We have some yew trees in the park and every year I look forward to the appearance of red fruits that have a very decorative appearance.

I share this photo with the Macro Monday Challenge.
