I couldn't ignore this single leaf basking in the sun.
Plant fun fact: There are approximately 500,000 chloroplasts per square millimeter of leaf. Chloroplasts are complex cellular machines which harness light energy, splitting water to create oxygen for us to breathe and cellular resources to convert CO2 into sugar. It is a crazy miracle to consider- so the next time you see a simple leaf, remember you are looking at a wonder of nature, packed with potentially a billion of little machines that we cannot live without. #plants #chloroplasts #photosynthesis #plantlife #kauai
