Here in the northern hemisphere, dead or dying leaves appear in all sorts of shapes and conditions as they plummet from their tree branches at this time of year. I noticed this particular leaf because it was filled with holes and was lying right in the middle of the trail. It wasn’t until I got home and looked at the image on my computer that I started noticing faces. One scowled and seemed to be shouting; another was clearly delighted to see me. This leaf’s best days may be long gone, but it clearly still has plenty on its mind!
