A couple of weeks ago I was walking down the boardwalk exiting the Naples Botanical Garden, taking in all the tropical vegetation growing on both sides. I’m always looking for a photo image, but usually this vegetation is too busy, too messy for a two-dimensional image. On this day, about six feet from the door, I stopped in my tracks.
A leaf had just unfurled that was so green, so shiny, and so BIG, that I had to take off my lens cover and beg my camera to take just a few more photos. Yup, it really was this green and this shiny – obviously Mother Nature thinks it is easy being really, really green.
Thanks, Michele – of The Daily Post fame – for giving a good context in which to post this photo. Her prompt is “It IS Easy Being Green.”
