Leaflessness

One of my favorite movie quotes is from A Bugs Life (1998). The Ants were given a deadline. They were told their deadline occurs “When the Last Leaf Falls”. I often think of that movie quote in the autumn of the year as leaves rapidly make their way to the ground.  I thought of that movie quote this week when I saw this barren tree. While its current state of November leaflessness is temporary, the tree provides a rich and colorful contrast against the autumn sky. I enjoy participating in the Weekly Photo Challenge hosted by The Daily Post. This week’s challenge is “Temporary”
