numbered leaves

Time for some green! Here's a picture from last spring. These are mountain laurel leaves numbered with a wax pencil, part of a multi-year study on the effects of white-tailed deer herbivory on laurel seed set. (The deer exclosure shown in the previous photo is central to the study.)

Something nicely mysterious about numbers on leaves, even if there's a clear and rational back-story.
Dave Bonta: I can never decide how much to say. I do like it better without the explanation myself, but then I figured someone would just ask me in comments anyway.
