I threw in a pet picture. Why not? People through in pictures of their kids. As a pet owner and a pet sitter I spend lots of time with pets. And if the rule for writers is to write what you know that it probably is true for artists to capture what they know. And for a photographer the more you know about your subject, especially the mobile ones, the better your chances for capturing them.
That said I probably should include that I do not know leaves as well. So practice. This one posed nicely.
But to be honest I like trees without leaves a lot. Though the tree above has one lone leaf left on it.
When you are driving down the mountain through leafless stands and come across a grove still in brilliant yellow it is likely the grove is all one plant.
Sometimes I get tired of trees and take off for the junk yard. I have access to both. As well as the pets. Life is good.
