A Slice of Sunshine

- A little slice of sunshine for your winter day. An orange contains 45 mg of Vitamin C or about 75% of the recommended daily amount. This a "Navel Orange" a mutation that dates back almost 200 years. Because these oranges have no seeds and are therefore sterile they must be propagated through grafting. Thus all navel oranges are genetically identical clones and can be considered as the fruit the original tree from 200 years ago. Thanks to my wife Cindy for photo idea for tonight - it takes a village. Canon 7D, 1/160 sec @ f/5.0, ISO 400, 100mm macro with two LED lights, one front and one back light.
