The beauty of a leaf

Finding beauty where you're least expecting it can be very exciting. as on the weekend when we cleared out several years of accumulated manure from our silky bantam run. It was a dirty smelly business but work has its rewards  such as in the fragility of these leaf skeletons. I know there are sites that show you how to make leaf skeletons(something about an old toothbrush and gently scraping away the flesh from a presoaked leaf but sometimes finding ones that nature has made itself can be equally satisfying, a bit like hidden treasure. Anyway we had fun!
