    anyone knows the scientific name of this local plant (actually the pix is from a plant in India) commonly known as Buah Cherry?

    gosh! memories... the fruits were a favourite when i was younger.
    i don't seem to see them anymore.
    the national parks board probably got rid of them from the messy fruits... dang!
    sorry i can't help on the name but i just had to say something about it!

    Cheers,

    got the name liao, Muntingia calabura.

    Benny, didn't bring my flash (actually it was sitting in Canon Service Centre). Took this during a 9-hour arse-bouncing trip from Bangalore to Coorg along the Mysore Road. The place is a rest-house called Cauveri Komfort, as it is near the Cauveri River, a very long river where many Indian fishes are collected.

    Also I only took the EF-S 17-85 so don't have true macro. Sunlight was very bright so I can't see the focusing well. In fact it is not very sharp.

    If it's that bright, the AF should be spot on. But wind is always a killer for outdoor flower shoots.

    actually I am wondering if my AF is working properly or not. also I cannot remember if I had AF lock then recompose, because in the EOS Viewer the AF spot is on the left top petal, yet the pistils are in focus.

    of course there is the bloody wind.

    interestingly this plant is actually native to Central America, see http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/m...ca_cherry.html

    Origin and Distribution

    The Jamaica cherry is indigenous to southern Mexico, Central America, tropical South America, the Greater Antilles, St. Vincent and Trinidad. The type specimen was collected in Jamaica. It is widely cultivated in warm areas of the New World and in India, southeast Asia, Malaya, Indonesia, and the Philippines, in many places so thoroughly naturalized that it is thought by the local people to be native.
