Robin, Judy, Dan, Jim, Stan, Murry, and Laurence – thank you very much for taking your time to look at this image and writing your kind comments on it! While taking photos of this “leaf” I got some more colorful shots, with a bigger spectrum of colors, but I thought they were a little too annoying and finally decided to go with this one. I am really pleased you like it! Thanks once again!
