How is it that one leaf catches the breeze when none of the rest of the tree moves?
Have you ever seen this phenomenon? Can you with certainty explain it?
On a calm morning, with birds chattering and zooming about between trees and freshly filled feeders, just as the sun is about to squeeze up over the mountains, it will happen.
One maple leaf, dressed in its best red will flap. Pause. Then flap again.
The remainder of the tree stands frozen as if it were in a snapshot.
Did a tiny breath of breeze catch it and flip it like a teenage girl tossing back an errant curl?
Did a bug crawl across or drop onto it and tip its balance, and then rebound from it as from a flopping diving board?
Was it just my imagination?
