The Bird's Eye.


#1


This is the Bird's Eye, or Thai Chili Pepper.


When sliced or snipped it resembles a bird's eye.


The pepper is pungent and very fruity.


At ~75,000 Scoville Units, it lies right in between the Jalapeño and the Habanero.


The highest concentration of Capsaicin (the active ingredient) is in the translucent placenta surrounding the seed. Capsaicin protects the seed by giving the consumer a hot burning sensation.


This is how much I prefer in my soup.


Bon Appétit!!!1!

Great to see the DCP Morgan and I prepared so deliciously in action. :+1:

How about sensor swabs? Shouldn’t make things worse if applied correctly.

Thx both of you for the hard work and the kind remark!
I was actually hoping this camera would kick the bucket before too long. I’m not delicate or particularly careful when it comes to dust, sand, humidity. After my next overseas trip I promise to swab, if my camera survives. My wife keeps asking me, “do you want a new camera?” and I keep saying “but this one is still alive!”
I had to remove dust from the supermacro shot of the seed. I had set the 10-18mm to f/14 before reversing it, hoping to garner the translucency of the placenta.
