Bigleaf maple leaf-fall: 2015

Last year on Galiano Island, the leaves of bigleaf maple (Acer macrophyllum) began to turn in early August.

via GIPHY

This series begins August 05 and ends October 24. By late September half the leaves had fallen, and by late October, more than two months after the leaves first began to change colour, only few golden leaves remained.

80 days elapsed as the chlorophyll broke down and the leaves perished, to be blown away by autumn winds.

Can you see any patterns in the succession of change?
