Using a leaf as an umbrella may seem like something you’d only see in fantasy, but did you know that some leaves actually grow large enough for people to use them to stay dry in a rainstorm?

Hilda (from Pokémon Black & White) seems to have been caught in a squall without an umbrella. Luckily, she found a decent substitute.
Do you find any of the illustrations below to be a breath of fresh air?
