Tender young leaves on the trunk of a broadleafed mahogony highlighted by the afternoon sun caught my attention one day, but I didn't have my camera. Upon my return half an hour later the sun was already covered by thick clouds. So I returned the next morning to take a series of photos. This is the one I like most. It contrasts the fresh tender green leaf with the scaly, weather-beaten bark. The picture says to me that many grumpy old folks were once tender and young like this leaf.
