POTD: Early Birds
Fall color season is nicely underway here now, but I picked these three leaves up out of the yard several weeks ago while I was talking to our neighbor. I thought it was odd to see three brightly colored leaves very near each other when everything on the trees around us was still green. I thought it was strange to find these leaves then and the neighbor probably thought it was strange I was picking up a few leaves lying in the grass, but to his credit he didn’t say anything about it, probably because it didn’t rank particularly high on the list of strange things he’s seen me do before in the pursuit of good photographs. The leaves were not nearly so curled up when I found them but they sat on the kitchen counter for quite some time before I got around to photographing them.
