A fresh green colored beech leaf unfolds on a branch of a tree
In spring, as soon as the temperatures get a little warmer and the spring sun shines over the forests, the first shoots appear on the branches of the trees. This is a study of very fresh green leaves of a beech tree. The delicate leaves are just emerging from their protective sheaths and will grow to new size in the next few days. The close-up was taken outside in nature.
