About the only thing I can think to say about this photo is not worth repeating in polite company. Good thing you folks are an impolite bunch. :-)

A leaf separated from the herd. From the looks of things it has been shot in the past and it was beyond medical care. The only thing left to do is to let things fall as they may. But I didn't have time to wait for nature to take its course. So I left. The leaf for all I know is still tenaciously clinging to the branch.

Enjoy and your comments welcomed.

Very nice macro work, Wendell. Fortunately, the wind wasn't blowing for the shoot. Fantastico!

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

Great close-up. The forces of nature destroyed a perfectly good leaf or what's left of it! lol Nice details.

This is a great close up photo and very artistic looking capture to with love sharpness and stunning autumn colour and superb presentation. And I like how you capture the sun shining through the leaf bring out the detail of the veins in the leaf too.

Lovely gold - not sure whether it is 14k or 18k - but it looks rich to me. Good capture Wendell.
