A Reflection of a Shadow

Description

This is a macro of a Marrie tree leaf that has decayed into a skeleton. It has a lace look to it. Thought it made for a good still life and detailed macro photo.
All comments welcome!

Thank you all so much Karen, Chris, Harvey, Joanna and Colleen for all your kind words, time and feedback. I really appreciate it!
@Chris - yes it's certainly not a mirror, very perceptive mate. It's a sort of plastic that my bedside table is made out of. Provided a fantastic coloured background. #11583549
