Backlit by bright sunlight, these funny looking green apricot things are, in fact, loquats.
These are what Sparky the squirrel was checking out the other week.
Sorry, Sparky, these are still not quite ripe enough to eat just yet. They will be orange when ready.
In the first photo, I like how the sunlight outlined the fruit, as I took the shot by craning my neck backwards while looking straight up into the tree.
post script: Do you remember my Mystery Post from May? You can see what the loquats looked like back then; weird looking brown things with white blossom!
