A nice find and very well photographed, Jim. I really like the placement of the culprit in the frame. My only real nit in this image is the background. I think it could use some smoothing and the light colored area on the right draws my eye. I don’t think you have to do anything with the area directly behind the leaf, but the area around the outside would benefit from a little cleaning up.

Jim, good suggestions from Dennis. As an alternative, a macro crop to focus more strongly on the culprit, eliminating the problem areas in the BG.

A much simpler and more elegant solution, Phil.
