Take the Opportunity to Make a Picture

Autumn Leaf on Chrysanthemums
Missoula, Montana

One of the great advantages of the camera in our smartphones is that it's always available to capture an unexpected moment. I discovered this fallen leaf on a pot of flowers on my deck last fall. I quickly pulled out my phone and created this picture, making sure to tap on the leaf that I wanted in sharp focus. Then I positioned the camera so the leaf appeared at an angle instead of horizontal and took the shot.
