Available Light

I got a little carried away with this sequence. On the way home this morning I came upon these beautiful leaves spread across the footpath. It had rained during the night and as you can see some of them are beginning to show signs of breakdown. I looked above and momentarily thought about pulling a few fresh ones of the nearest branch but then decided I would rather collect the ones that had fallen. When the clouds cleared and light came brilliantly through the front window, I knew that it was the right time to photograph the leaves using the available light - and my young ones late afternoon snack. The photograph of my young one looking at the rainbow was taken late yesterday afternoon.
