All of a droop

By microchip
These are conker tree leaves (HorseChestnut)
taken at about 7.30 one morning a couple of weeks ago in bright sunlight,I liked the way they looked as if drooping yet really just opening, right from the camera no manipulation at all, just a slight crop,
many thanks for your excellent response to our last upload,hope you like this one,.. Better in large,
Alan
