I love this leaf. I actually ended up bringing it home, after I took several shots of it. (I’ll probably share more of them.) It’s a fascinating little structure!

How pretty! It truly is all about light, huh? 🙂

I was and still am completely fascinated with this leaf (I brought it home). I can’t figure out how it’s still holding itself together; it looks so fragile, and yet’s actually fairly sturdy–the skeleton of it, that is. A wonderful and beautiful structure. I took more photographs of it that I may share, just to show precisely how translucent it really is.

More and more difficult, Lemony…

You are incredibly kind and so encouraging to me. Thank you.

I am not sure what I am looking at – but this is cool picture!

It’s actually just a translucent leaf (with mostly just it’s skeleton and veins left… the rest eaten away by time and bugs, I guess). I’m holding it up in one hand so that we can also see it’s shadow on the sidewalk. I’m glad you like the shot!

very interesting… what made them transparent?

I found this leaf on the sidewalk (which is the background for the shot). There is just one leaf, and it has probably been eaten up by bugs. I brought the leaf home, after taking lots of photographs of it. I was enthralled by its shape and translucence. I was also fascinated by its structure and sturdiness (despite its very fragile appearance): its simply a skeleton now with only its veins remaining. I will probably post a few more images of it in the coming days. Thank you for your interest!

Amazing! If I can find a transparent leaf I’ll have to try that. I’m assuming that insects ate all but the veins.

Such precious capture …lovely

Thank you very much. I took other photographs of this leaf that I may post another time. I kept the leaf, too… I couldn’t let it go. It’s still holding its beautiful form.

This is just brilliant! I love that it flirts with being abstract whilst being very much a picture.

Thank you, Richard. I have more images that I took that day of this leaf, which I may post some other time. I’m completely taken with its structure, so seemingly delicate, and yet still firmly holding its form.

Great shot…love the textures

Thanks, Steve. I’ll be over soon for a visit to see what you’ve been up to.

I like how the shadow’s tonality completely fit the tonality of the background. As If it was burned in.

Thank you for this great observation and comment.

I love every single texture that you captured here.
Very artistic shot!

Love it, I think it is very artistic 🙂

Thank you, Yas. New territory for me. 🙂
