Photohunters: Metal

The photohunters theme this week is metal. Perhaps a somewhat ironic choice, but I thought I'd show you a metal leaf in the North Carolina Botanical Garden. There are also many vegetative leaves in that garden, but I think the idea of a metal leaf is novel. If you get a chance to visit Snap2Days, I do parallel lives posts, including photohunters, there with SabineM. You can find other photohunters at the home of the hunt - on Saturday and you can browse anytime at .

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Your pictures often contain a surprise or two. A metal leaf in the garden has to be different.
