halloween Spike


Struggled with this one. The best I could do is something botanical (Biology being my main science interest) - These are my little forest of Japanese maples. All descendants of the same original tree, and yet each one is its own distinct color at this time of the year. (although, full disclosure, this photo was probably taken last year - they haven't actually turned color yet this year). Anyway, a scientific explanation would be that the lack of chlorophyll in the late fall allows the underlying pigments to show. All we need to know is "tree pretty". :)
