Wish I could tell you that this was my first photo I took of this leaf. I have come to a time in my photography where I work the subject. Yes I always rush in and get that first one under my bleat. Then the creative process kicks in. What was it that made me stop and want to take a photo and how can I make that thing look better. Must have shot a dozen images before I got this one. The truth told, I was walking away and happens to turn around when I saw this image.
