Light and shadow

A backlit leaf in morning sunlight:

The edge details and the shadow borderline caught my eye. That morning a couple of weeks ago was the first frost around here, just a little in low lying areas. Tonight will be a hard frost, it’s going below freezing – and the beginning of the brown season. Today I saw two Eastern Comma butterflies, a nice sighting on a cool (50’s) windy fall day – I probably won’t see them again until spring.

  1. beatiful use of light Tom- I like how the black ‘dots’ are emphasised, very nice! Our butterflies are pretty much done for the year here too.. still a few hearty moth species, but miss those flying flowers 🙂
