  1. Nice shot! It is interesting to me to note that some maples hold onto their leaves like beech and oak do, while most fall off. For some reason they do not form the cell breaks at the end of the petiole that result in leaf fall. Genetic mutation perhaps? My naturalist mind wanders and wonders. ๐Ÿ™‚

      It’s the same thing with pin oaks (which I find to be messy and overused) with their raggedy leaves hanging on all winter.

      But the beech and oak, well, by February, their leaves are the only spots of color in the woods, and for that I thank them.

      The maples are a mystery. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you!
