One Yellow Leaf

Challenge #104 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
In this challenge, show us one natural yellow leaf, its beauty, detail, veins and texture of the leaf. Macro and close-up photos welcome. The single yellow leaf may be outside, still attached to the tree or plant, or it may have fallen, and attracted you to it where it lies. Other leaves may be in the background, but there should only be one dominant leaf as the subject. The leaf may be lemon-yellow, or gold, but not orange. This is the second of a series of challenges I am hosting about leaves, so collect shots of single leaves in orange, red, brown and multi-coloured, for these later challenges. Purple, pink and blue leaves will also have their own challenges, but I think they will be multiple leaves, as it is probably difficult to find examples of single leaves in these colours.
