False Solomon's seal (Smilacina racemoso). Also called Solomon's plume. I desaturated the greens a little.

Beautiful!! I think I see plants like this around my location here in Seattle area ;-)

@Denny Jump: Yes, I do think this is in a lot of places. It is native to North America. Another plant is similar: Solomon's Seal. The difference is in the flowers, both their form and their location on the plant.

you framed the berries nicely against a darker section formed by the inner shadow. Looks like a couple are turning orange - is that their ripe color?

@Harry: Hi Harry, Thanks for your comments! Sorry it took so long for me to answer your question (Had to figure out how to do that!) The berries are still young and green, literally. They will eventually turn red. I will try to post this year's changes in color. Some years, the berries seem to either disappear or get damaged by insects or storms.
