Nature in One Colour

Challenge #132 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
In this FULL COLOUR challenge, show us pictures in nature where the subject is in monochrome, that is, in different shades or tones of a SINGLE colour. NO entries in black & white only, or sepia. You may enter photos of any colour, for example green, but the whole picture must be in shades of green. Ditto white, yellow, pink, red.... See my examples below. Macro and close-ups welcome. Please, let nature show us the colour, don't de-saturate or use excessive post-programming to produce the single colour. I will disqualify plain blue skies, because that's just too easy. 1,600px MAXIMUM on the entry's longer side.

53rd place
I almost didn't take this - I noticed the leaf when I was jogging down a hill in the Vosges, and was a few paces further when I stopped to think about it. Worth it in the end.
