Mountain Mahogany on Tolcats Trail
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Alderleaf Mountain Mahogany (Cercocarpus montanus) is an early bloomer, and by late spring its branches are already adorned with whimsical feathery seed-styles, ready to fly away and descend, corkscrew-style, into the soil.
In this sunset picture with a distant Antelope Island, the fuzz of the seed-styles glows in the last rays of the day. 6/11/2008 9:10 pm.
