Death defying

Publish Post
Despite suffering from drought on its tip, this leaf boldly shows its colors. I was sitting outside this weekend with the camera when the setting sun started putting on a light show through the foliage. I believe dusk is a camera's play time. But it takes sitting still, being observant and letting the photos suggest themselves.

Can you imagine how hard it would be to go to work if all this resplendent color was blazing around us all the time?

I like the photo. It is nice to see how Nature works.

Today—
Their beaks close, their eyes shut and their heads flop over the edge of the nest.
