vein structure, Bradford pear leaf, color removed

The title says it. I saw a carpet of colorful and lovely Bradford pear leaves on the ground, and decided to see what would happen if I isolated one, and removed the color. You can see more detail at the larger sizes.

 

Clearly, the veins are pinnate in arrangement.

 

This photo shows colorful Bradford pear leaves, on the tree and on the ground.
