Royas en Álamo

This cottonwood leaf (Populus deltoides) is along the trail between South 9th St. and Beck Lane in Lafayette. The little rust colored spots on the leaves is a Melampsora rust fungus. This fungus is a very common inhabitant of cottonwood leaves, it adds a bit of color for those who take the time to look closely. Picture taken July 16, 2009.
