The Dead Leaves of Winter

Challenge #206 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
This is the final challenge about leaves in the four seasons. In this challenge, show us the dead or dying leaves of winter. The bright colours of the autumn leaves have faded, and all that's left are leaves still hanging desperately on the tree branch, or lying on the ground, waiting to provide nutrients for new growth in the cycle of life. Macro and close-ups welcome. Minimal evidence of humans, pets, or man-made constructions. Insects may be present on the leaves but should not dominate the picture. Size of entry: 1,600pixels on its longer side.
