Oak leaf in pen and ink

Manning the front desk again, and doodling to give my brain something to do (kind of a slow day here). I'm assuming that this leaf comes from a bur oak. I mean, I know that it's an oak leaf; it's the bur part that I'm assuming. Oak trees don't grow naturally in this part of Alberta, so of course it makes perfect sense that we have one growing right outside of the Nature Centre's back door...

I'm not terribly happy with this doodle, but I'm posting it anyway. As I said yesterday, the lighting at the front counter is really not great for trying to draw any sort of detail, and I won't even tell you how many times I had to move to find a shadow that wasn't caused by three lights at once. Frustrating.
