Brilliant Sugar Maple

Taken with my favorite lens, the Nikon AF FX Micro-NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8D.  Sugar Maple leaf in the late afternoon autumn sun. The leaf was held perpendicular to the sun in order give definition to the texture of the leaf. Note the sympathetic colors in the autumn foliage in the background.  Nikon D90. f/8. Processed in Aperture. Not sure what I had for lunch that day.
