Amazing Fallen Leaf Colors‏

Sea grapes which grow just behind the beach dunes have leaves that are huge and beautiful even in their normal green growth period, but when they drop off the trees in mid-winter they can be very colorful.  When I held this one up to the sun it showed an amazing contrast between the reddish leaf tissue and the green veins which circulate the fluids from the tree to the leaf.  Who says we don't have fall/winter leaf colors in Florida?
