One Brown Leaf

Challenge #109 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
In this challenge, show us one natural brown leaf, its beauty, detail, veins and texture of the leaf. Macro and close-up photos welcome. The single brown leaf may be outside, still attached to the tree or plant, but it has probably 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.This is the third of a series of challenges I am hosting about leaves, so collect shots of single leaves in orange, red, 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.
