Autumn


Silver Birch

The leaf stalk of the same leaf as in my previous two pictures.

Uploaded this picture slightly warily because I'm sure at least one person will do a double take! It really is the leaf stalk, and shows the yellowish "corky layer" that forms in the autumn and makes the leaf fall off the tree.

Its got Old Man's whiskers, Ellie [I recognise this as I have the same stuff on my face sometimes].

I might be starting to get that corky layer just north of my neck, too.

It takes a macro shot like this, Ellie, to educate us! I never knew the "leaf stalk" had whiskers like this!

Marvelous detail Ellie, you are making good use of that lens
Best one so far!
Yep - I did a double take. Those lenses are producing some marvellous images, Ellie. And you are getting closer and closer.

Impressive fine detail.
Amazing detail, Ellie. I doubt if my old yes would have seen this in the flesh.
Got to agree with Bill, an excellent close up Ellie.

WOW spot on I love all the little details on the stalk.
I think you've got the focusing down pat.
Lovely shot Ellie.

Had a tornado whistle up our road yesterday (...really!) Got to see quite a few leaves like this come tumbling down! Lovely close-up shot Ellie. Great details.
