The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge has the theme of Structure, which has made me very happy, as there is lots of structure in Nature and the world around us.
Yesterday’s post focused on the structure of a cabbage, as it grows and produces fractal geometries. Today, I’m going back to a leaf structure, but very different from the first in this series.

This leaf is simple in its construction, filled with elegance and truly minimalistic, yet incredibly strong.
Hope you enjoy!
