Even the aquatic plants are starting to show the first signs that autumn is on its way. As with most plants the browning of the leaves this time of year isn't a sign of them dying, merely that the plant is allowing the chlorophyll to break down as there is no longer enough light for it to be able to usefully provide food for the plant though photosynthesis. As much as can be of the chemical structure is reabsorbed into the body of the plant ready for next year. Canon EOS 5D
