Bilberries 2560x1600

Few bilberries from this autumn. There is quite a severe disambiguation with the name of this berry. I just learned that these are not blueberries but bilberries. In Finnish these are called Mustikat which kind of translates to blackies. Sorry it is like that with Finnish, base word is black (musta) but it is twisted to a noun which is possible in Finnish. Berries them self are of course blue so one might think that the Finnish name would be Sinikät (bluies) and correct English name there fore would be blue berries. None of this makes any sense what so ever.
