Macro of the pattern in a red dead autumn leaf

I picked up a big dead red leaf as I walked one of the back alleys in town. I liked the colours. When I got home, I held the leaf up to the window so the daylight shone through it. I took close-up photographs of the leaf venation patterns that looked like micro-mosaic. Larger patches reminded me of stained glass. I love finding natural abstract art like this. No digital alterations needed.
