Falling leaves


Sometimes the strangest things catch my eye.  This last weekend I was walking toward my car when I spotted this single leaf clinging to the front of a car.  The tree it came from is still full of bright green leaves but there seems to be just a few that have started to turn color and fall off.  This one attached itself to the grill of this car.

Any idea what kind of car it is?




It was a nice shiny black Jaguar.  I wonder if that leaf was as attracted to that car as much as I was and decided to hop on for a spin around town.

Oh well spotted Sharon, the Jaguar is such an elegant car.. The autumn leave looks quite at home on that shiny grill :)

Neat shot! I wouldn't have realized that was a car grill if you hadn't posted the second picture.

Beautiful detail, I love the contrast between the leaf and the metal.

I would have had no idea what kind of car it was. It makes for two fascinating images!

That reddish orange leaf sure stands out. I didn't recognize the car. I should have. There are many around here.
