Lifeline.


While out on a hike over the weekend I came across this spotted leaf that caught my eye. While trying to focus on it I was surprised by the bright red stem. Interesting looking lifeline.

Wonderful pages you offer here. I love this glimpse from your single square pictures and the way it weaves the stories together.

Very nice! The red stem seems to jump up from the image.

I was so intrigued by the yellow with spots that I almost missed the red stem!

The moving of one form to another. Soon, it will part of the earth, time passes and then nutrient for the tree once again. Cool.

It's as if the plant is pumping blood into the leaf in a last ditch effort to save it.
