I like this idea. Small leaves in two different colours on BG from old tree. Composition is central but it works very well here.

Rare to see offshoots of two different colors coming out of tree trunk like this. I believe the yellow one have dried up.

Hello Bob, it is interesting to see the new growth coming out of the trunk. I wonder if it was left alone whether it would keep growing. But looking at the yellow leaves I see they are dying , so I can't see this lot getting any bigger. Also autumn is on the way - hurrah, that means spring is on the way down under. . .
I often take photos of tree trunks too, as I like to see the shadows and textures.

Hi Bob - nicely presented. Beautiful colors - and you're right - a very interesting growth! I like the way you've centered this photo.

Different bark patterns are always interesting to see and this little lost twig on trunk of the Horse Chestnut is a bonus! FIne details and colours but I would personally have gone a bit closer to get more details, but you know that's me! :-)
TFS and regards, Ulla

Yep, i can se what drew you to this sight Bob, or at least your wife anyway! They look very delicate agains the rough texture of the bark. Well seen, a tip of the hat to both photographer and spotter alike.

of the bark, and excellent contrast between the bark
and the leafs, i love their colours, TFS

Interesting indeed Bob,
Reminds me of a bright red leaf I found earlier this summer lying on the forest floor. I thought then I should probably get a shot of it but I didn't have my camera handy.
Nice contrasting colors and very original composition. Your wife has a good eye for the unusual.
