Love the holes in the leaf - it's such a strong colour but that makes it look really delicate
October 6th, 2013  
I can second that emotion.

Sorry I've been lax in commenting and replying to comments - I've been both busy and uninspired.
October 6th, 2013  
Really gorgeous !!

Beautiful, love the simplicity
October 7th, 2013  
Very awesome! My photo 'spidey' senses are tingling - did you put the leaf there or find it? It looks awesome!
October 7th, 2013  
@archaeofrog Katie, your spidey senses are right on! I did place the leaf there. I was photographing it on the ground and wishing I had some backlighting. Saw the post there with just the right little groove to hold the stem and the rest is history.. or photo as the case may be. :)
October 7th, 2013  
@archaeofrog I tried the same shot with a fresh, unblemished leaf thinking that would be better, but later when seeing large, appreciated the imperfections of this somewhat battered leaf.
October 7th, 2013  
I see why - this is gorgeous!
October 7th, 2013  
Gorgeous ---- FAV
October 7th, 2013  
Superb in its simplicity.
October 7th, 2013  
@pflaume I agree. I think there's something more intriguing about imperfection.
