Maple leaves 1, Coldwater, Michigan

A few maple leaves, probably on a sugar maple tree, hanging in a yard near the hospital where my mother passed away last month. I went out and took a few photos, as Coldwater, Michigan, was full of fall colors at the time.


The palmate venation can be clearly seen -- there are three major veins, all coming from a central point. Some leaves with palmate veins have five major veins.


This is just the way it came out of the camera -- SOOC -- except for cropping a bit.


Isn't God a great artist? Thanks for looking.
