Gorgeous colors and great composition against the almost-but-not-quite blackness. I like Steve's crop too but being as taken with those leaves as I am, would probably wouldn't be able to give them up.

Minnie, I waited close to an hour for a Snowy to peach in that tree. The tree have several nesting females and if I waited I would catch a male checking in with its mate. There was on and off light rain so I just waited with the camera covered under a big golf umbrella.
