Here's the answer to yesterday's question/photo. It is the blossom from the common northern Minnesota Sugar Maple. Who would have thought? The largest blossom visible in the first photo is approximately 3/16 inch, or less, in diameter; a tiny testament to the beauty that surrounds us--wherever we may choose to look in the wondrous natural world that our God has created for our joy and enlightenment. The 1st photo has not been enhanced except for cropping, and a bit of curves in Fastone, and is cropped from the uppermost cluster of flowers in the second photo. The second photo is only slightly enlarged, about 2X, and shot from about 10 feet with a 5d3 and 100-400L mk2. Each year I watch this tree develop it's leaves and then change to brilliant red in the fall, and had never bothered to examine the blossoms in detail during the spring flowering. Thanks to those who responded. John
