saving its best for last

How beautiful the leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.
--John Burroughs (1837-1921), naturalist and essayist

These are the last of the red leaves I found in the woods. It looks like poison ivy, but I don't think it is -- because poison ivy doesn't have serrated edges. But anyway, whatever it is, it saved its beauty for one last autumn show.

Details: Nikon D90 with Tamron 90mm macro lens, 1/60 sec. f/3.5 ISO 1600.
