Reference Photos for The Hardheads painting

Still waiting for the illustration boards to dry so I can sand them and transfer my drawing.  Speaking of the drawing, I went out with the camera and took some reference photos for the painting of the Hardheads.   I have removed the color from the photo so that I can get a nice accurate drawing without being overwhelmed by the green color.  Also, when I get ready to paint them, I will do this again.  The greens in these leaves are way too bold and I don't want it to overwhelm my painting.  I will reduce the intensity of the hue and lower the value when I paint them.
