About leaves: a science lesson



Leaves are descended from dinosaurs.




 They are vertebrates.




 
 Although they appear to be cute, one must be cautious. They are wild creatures.



 
 Leaves are territorial, and therefore can be tense when coming upon another species.




 Introductions must be done carefully, much like cats and dogs.





 Sometimes the interactions are not friendly.



Leaves protect themselves with large fleets of airborne vehicles. They are well-organized and can create havoc at certain times of the year.




 Leaves reproduce in much the same way as homo sapiens. That is to say, they are delivered by storks.




 There is great diversity in the leaf world: some baby leaves develop into fish-like creatures.




 While others resemble birds.


 Thank you for reading this science lesson. As you leave, please watch where you step.

  21. So creative! I like that you put art into ordinary things such as leaves and make them extraordinary and interesting. The captions too are funny.

  26. The details with the eyes and leaf shapes adds to the realism. I love the subdued colours and the expressions. Thank you for posting this a second time around for those of us who missed it the first time. It hasn't lost meaning, interest nor has it faded these three years later.
