- took this snap in Lake catherine National park in Arkansas.

Maples are distinguished by opposite leaf arrangement. The leaves in most species are palmate veined and lobed, with 3-9 (rarely to 13) veins each leading to a lobe, one of which is central or apical. A small number of species differ in having palmate compound, pinnate compound, pinnate veined or unlobed leaves. Several species, including Acer griseum (Paperbark Maple), Acer mandshuricum (Manchurian Maple), Acer maximowiczianum (Nikko Maple), and Acer triflorum (Three-flowered Maple), have trifoliate leaves. One species, Acer negundo (Manitoba Maple), has pinnately compound leaves that may be simply trifoliate or may have five, seven, or rarely nine leaflets. A few, such as Acer laevigatum and Acer carpinifolium (Hornbeam Maple), have pinnately-veined simple leaves

This is such a cool shot! It's almost a story in the making, considering that you can see the leaves that floated days before these now on the bottom of the lake starting the recycling process. How long will it take these gorgeous ones to sink. In the meantime, it's a great color contrast and terrific detail. Well done!

Hello Ashok! Wonderful composition. Nice colors. Very nice contrast. Good take. Regards!
