Weekly Photo Challenge: Weightless

A crimson leaf, gently resting on a patch of floating duckweed.

Our theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is:  Weightless.
Our instructions:  This week, share a photo of something marked by its weight — or its air of weightlessness.  Show us gravity at its most unforgiving, or most generous.

I took this photo over the summer at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, New York.
I thought it was unusual to see a red leaf in July, but I was especially struck by the absolute stillness of the moment — the way the leaf seemed perfectly weightless against the duckweed.
