Patterns and Shapes in Nature- 3

Palmately lobed leaf

First, some leaf architectural terms to describe this shape πŸ™‚ This is a simple lobed leaf. Lobed leaves are those that have distinct projections of veins from the midrib. In palmately lobed leaves major primary veins that originate at or near the base of the leaf enter the lobes.
The leaf margin is continuous and leaf is not divided into leaflets. These leaves have the lobes spreading radially like fingers on a hand.

These are leaves of bitter gourd.
