One Red Leaf

Challenge #123 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
In this challenge, show us ONE RED LEAF, the beauty of its colour, details, veins and texture. The leaf can be outside, still attached to the tree or plant, or it might have fallen to the ground. Other leaves may be in the background, but the single red leaf should be dominant as the subject. Please, no yellow, green, brown, pink, purple or orange leaves, no flowers of any colour in this challenge. This is the sixth of a series of challenges about leaves, so collect shots of blue leaves, multi-coloured leaves, and contrasting leaves for later challenges. Macro and close-up photos welcome.
