Featured: Color changes can't disguise the torn, tattered, and chewed on bits
Featured October 20
Featuring oak leaves that have made it through the year, but not entirely unscathed. Lots of evidence of insect depredation on display, as well as color change.
For those who care about such things, the rounded lobes of the leaves identify this as some species of white oak.

Note added: In answer to the question in one of the comments, this was shot handheld. The camera was sort of overhead, sort of at arms' length, with the LCD tilted outward to aid in aiming and composing. I had selected a small flexible spot for focusing, and probably focused on the openwork area of the main leaf
