LEAF ON BRICK PATH, CHICAGO BOTANIC GARDEN, GLENCOE, ILLINOIS, NOVEMBER 30, 2013
Pentax 55-300 at 97.5 mm
1/1000 sec. f8
I spent much of the cold and windy early morning at the Botanic Garden hunting birds and having no luck, but luckily this leaf (no idea what species) skittered across a brick pathway in front of me. The low and warm sunlight outlined the leaf's ribs in high relief and I went home satisfied with the color and texture, if not the subject.
