    Superbe! Comme c’est original, on dirait une pièce de tissu ligné et plissé. Quasiment un tartan écossais :) Belle découverte et très bien photographié :)

    So this is a leaf then. Amazing. I have never seen one like it before, so many colours.

    It is so abstract and beautiful !

  • yes, the leaves are very colorful. it’s just not easy to take macro shots because the leaves are very high and I have to take a picture fast before the wind blow. thank you so much Morag ;)
