Great shots of the wild strawberry. I would love to see them in real life.

Very nice shot....the rocks under the flower set things off further.

Wild strawberries! I used to pick enough for a small shortcake when I was a child but hadn't seen any for years until this spring when I found two tiny little red berries. I'd forgotten how sweet they were - nothing like the domestic. It was pleasure! Fantastic photo.

Beautiful shot! Macros take more than I can usually manage, somehow. I think I will blame the camera!

I thought that looked like a wild strawberry! I used to pick and eat them along the old disused railway track when I was a child.

They have such an exquisite flavour, compared to domestic strawberries.

Fabulous fine fragrant fragile five-petalled strawberry flower.

RE: your question on elk & caribou/reindeer relatedness: both are ungulates, with caribou representing an ancient line of deer adapted for long distance running. Cf. Geist (1998) "Deer of the World."

Does it get fruit? If so, do you suppose we ever ate it?

They have a very tiny berry which you can eat. Its very sweet. But they are so tiny that it would be hard to imagine husking them to preserve or use in baking. I've seen my brother's Lab, Jesse, munch on them. They are very plentiful and fragrant.
