Dendrology

Ok, so I've been doing this leaf collection for my biology class....and I happened to have some leaves as a result. Therefore, I took some pictures of them.





 Don't ask me what kind of leaves these are......I think they're poinsettias, I could be wrong. They weren't actually part of my collection, just a casualty of my camera as I was walking by...

I really love the super-macro mode on my camera, if you haven't noticed by now.....I'm going to try to take some more photos like this of different plants, so be on the lookout for that in the future. Oh! I should do it in the fall when all the leaves start changing color. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.

As always, these are slightly edited, so here are the originals in my picasa album.

  1. I've always found it cool that as well as breathing and everything else a plant does, they even have veins, really hits home that they are alive.

  2. It's incredible how leaves so naturally resemble our own bodily systems. They resemble our veins astonishingly well
