Like a joy on the heart of a sorrow, the sunset hangs on a cloud;
A golden storm of glittering sheaves, of fair and frail and fluttering leaves,
The wild wind blows in a cloud.

Hark to a voice that is calling, to my heart in the voice of the wind:
My heart is weary and sad and alone, for its dreams like the fluttering leaves have gone,
and why should I stay behind?
Autumn Song by Sarojini Naidu

    Yes sherri, it was one of those rare lucky shots. While reviewing the shots of that day, I was really surprised to see the leaf comes out that sharp even at 1/80sec. I’ve used AI Focus and one of the outer focus points. Fortunately they dropped very slowly. Thanks @all for the comments!
