Amazing leaves



Sorry, but I just can't get enough of these Japanese maples and the incredible shapes and colors of the leaves.  In the foreground, you can see that the foliage is so finely cut that it looks like an army of orange spiders is advancing towards you.  

At the top, just right of center, what appears as a blur is a trio of leaves from a different tree.

Once again, we're in Bill Hudgins' garden in Atlanta.  He has over 120 different types of Japanese maples (but hundreds and hundreds of trees).  My favorite photograph is yet to come.
