On the way back from my bike ride I stopped off at a nearby farmers market.

They had these over-sized strawberries for sale. Normally I avoid the mutant giant berries because they just don't have the flavor of the smaller types.

But they looked like fine targets so I bought a basket.

I tried several times and all of the shots went OK. But I thought this one was just a little better. That silly strawberry is almost 8cm tall.

The object to the right is what is doing all the damage. It's a ~10mm steel bearing that was launched at about 300 meters per second from a copper air cannon.
