Imperfect Leave

This is a falling leave hanging on a very slender spider silk.

In an early morning after a whole night rain, I got up early to capture fallen leaves. Suddenly the hanging leave caught my eyes. It is rotating fast around the silk in the wind because it is very light. Look carefully, you can see small raindrops on the silk. I chose a nice background with red foliage, and took many shots. I realized that there is a hole in the leave, and tried to replace it with a perfect leave, but I failed.

Now I understand that imperfection may be the most natural and beautiful part of our life.
