2010, Day 260 - Leaves

I put my own spin on today's Daily Shoot assignment.

Showcase the beauty of living foliage! Make a photo of a single leaf or an entire "greenscape" today.

So I fully intended to shoot leaves today but it was one of those days where it rained but only when I went outside, otherwise it was dry. On my way back from a meeting I was driving down Stark and I saw Portland Nursery coming up so I pulled over and decided that because they sell plants I might find a leaf or two worth of photographing there. Unfortunately that's when the assignment kind of went out the window because as my regular readers know full well I like nothing more than flowers and bugs and I found both!

Do you see the other hover fly on the left in the background, he was a nice surprise!
