The Hosta in my garden have for most part been looking good this year. This early afternoon as I was doing the daily plant review I noticed that my Hosta Popcorn had a center section of leaf that was transparent. Not eaten, or dried. Transparent. The plant is a first year plant (survived last winter), and is in fairly shaded garden.

Anyone have any thoughts on what might be causing this?

I've cut off the two offending leaves in the hopes of controling this anomaly. Again if anyone has any ideas as to what is happening I'ld like to hear them.
