love the green against the gorgeous blue sky Glenn
Thanks so much, Vickie! Today featured a brilliant sky and had to take some shots!
Beautiful colours! Really like the way the sun is shining on the branches :-)
Thanks Trish, appreciate your perspective and support!
Wonderful capture Glenn
It looks very much like a type of fig tree but I may be wrong……………..wonderful image with colours that work well together!!
Hello Fara, since there is no scale, the fruits are about the size of a tennis ball. Appreciate you wonderful feedback!

Much appreciated, Kind Sir!
Nice one Glenn. No idea what it is.
Thanks Carl, I know onions don’t grow on trees, so it isn’t that!!!
Hi Glenn, I did some research and as Fara suggests, it’s definitely one of the many species of ficus or fig tree.
Well, I never would have guessed. So Figs and ficus are the same? Thank Carl and thanks again Fara. Will look into it some. Really, never would have guessed!
The fruit resembles to figs but the leafs don’t match at all… Very good capture anyway!
Howdy Joao, I am still in the dark! Seems a consensus on ficus/fig family though. Thanks for your kind comments and info!
Ok, after some time checking in wikipedia and finding out that there are actually about 237 different species of fig trees (!!!!!!!!), I manage to get to the answer quit quick actually due to the amazing human quality of ordering stuff by alphabetic order. Therefore, it was quite obvious that one of the first ones in the list with the name Ficus americana would be most likely our winner. After a google images research I got the confirmation. I believe we found our guy Glenn! :) Victory shall be ours, ahahahahahah :))
Joao, thank you! The leaves look correct, but I still haven’t seen the fruit that is at the same stage of growing, that matches these. I’ll see as they mature! Mille Grazie!
