I have to tell you right up front that these leaves are staged. Normally, I love to take pictures of things in nature as I run across them. However, my cousin asked that I take more leaf pictures. On our walk the next day, I was going to focus on leaves. I opened my camera to take some pictures, but I hadn't charged my battery in my camera and it said it was too low to take any. So, I did the next best thing I could which was pick them up during the course of my walk and bring them home to "stage" in my backyard so I could at least capture the variety of shapes and colors. This is the first set of staged pictures I took with the leaves I'd picked up.
