By Michael Seek

Kennen Sie das auch? Man ist mit Freunden unterwegs, um Blaubeeren zu suchen. Nach einer halben Stunde haben einige in der Gruppe die Körbchen bereits halb gefüllt und Sie haben überschaubare sechs oder sieben Beeren gesammelt. Ganz schön frustrierend. 
Aber Sie geben nicht auf und nach einer halben Stunde hat sich das Blatt gewandelt. Sie suchen - und finden - wie ein Profi. Ihr Auge hat mittlerweile genau erfasst, wonach es schauen muss. Großartig - und die „Beute" schmeckt hervorragend.
