I think this is a snail trail. Perhaps it had one too many.

CORRECTION: This trail is caused by a leaf miner (=leaf-eating larva of several insects). See comment by Geodude a few posts below

It looks to me to be the result of leaf miner damage. In the near upper right of the leaf a trail starts out at about a hair's width, then gradually expands in width as the larva grows and chews it's way across the leaf. Finally it pupates in to a moth-like insect which then mates, lays eggs that soon hatch, and the cycle begins again. They do make interesting patterns...

Thanks for that comment. I had not considered leaf miners but I was suspicious of the may the trail changed width. Snail trail shouldn't do that, It's also not shiny the way a layer of slime should be.

ADDENDUM: Just checked for images of leaves worked on my a leaf miner, and yes, some of them match perfectly.

Bluets oblige with repetition as they commonly grow in clumps/clusters/patches.
