chance encounter

this leaf travelled
some distance
before settling in the pale brown clouds
of a hydrangea

it looks like
they'll winter together

Steven, these photos you're taking are just stunning! You capture the scene, but also the soul of the subjects.

The leaves and hydrangea will winter and die, Steven, and then re-emerge in the springtime in a new form.

A beautiful post, Steven.

What a lovely idea "they'll winter together" and shall eventually die in each other's arms.

Steven, I agree with RBB this is a stunning photo. It needs to be enlarged, elegantly framed & mounted in a place of honor.

The leaf - so lucky to have found such a comfy spot to endure the winter, in a gentle embrace of one much the same as it...Lovely story!
