I was scanning through files of old photographs yesterday, looking for an image to use for a project, when I came across a photo of a cottonwood leaf that had gotten caught by big bluestem. I remembered how much I liked that photo. A little later, I was looking through another folder of images and found a couple photos of cottonwood leaves along a stream at the Niobrara Valley Preserve. I liked those photos too. “Fine,” I thought, “I’ll just go with it.” Thus, today’s Photos of the Week post features photos of cottonwood leaves.
