Challenge has finished
This is the second challenge about leaves in the four seasons. Show us in this challenge the green leaves of SUMMER, their ability to give us shade and shelter from the hot sun, protection for birds, animals or insects to raise their young, and protection for the fruits on the trees or smaller plants. Macro and close-ups welcome. Insects may be present on the leaves but should not dominate the picture. SUMMER: approximately May through September in the Northern Hemisphere; November through March in the southern hemisphere. Make sure your entry is 1,600px MAXIMUM on its longer side. DPR does NOT resize your photos for you. You need to do this yourself BEFORE you enter a challenge. Entrants with oversize photos will not be invited to re-submit them. Get the size right the first time!
