Very nice, Debbie. I like the color combination. #1419168

Very nice color combo Debbie but a bit of a puzzle. The leaf is not attached to the tree. Did you catch this in free fall and pan it, or is this a composite? #9772297

Debbie E. Payne 10/30/2011 11:03:57 AM

No, Dale this little guy had made a stop on his way to the ground -in someone else's tree. No, I didn't mess with mother nature. This was just how I found it. I liked the colors as well. #9772457

Thank you, Michael, Jeff and B9th! Because this place was an arboretum, it yielded some pretty good leaf pictures. Here are a couple which I was going to upload to BP anyhow for next month so here they are: no need to critique. #9773070
