Semi-eaten Eucalypt leaf
Semi-eaten leaf

So delicate, with an intricate patchwork of greens and browns, I believe this leaf is from a Marri tree.

Dean and I were out walking in the Dalgraup Reserve, in the heart of the Blackwood Valley in Western Australia’s South West.  We were surrounded by a variety of eucalyptus trees – Karri, Jarrah, Marri* and Yarri – and as we walked, I noticed one area where the decomposition of the leaves on the forest floor was quite noticeable.

This leaf caught my attention and, subsequently, so did this photo I took.

* Marri’s (Corymbia calophylla), also known as Red Gum, were formerly known as Eucalyptus calophylla but were transferred from the Eucalyptus genus to the newly created Corymbia genus back in 1995.
