Mountain Maple Seeds

Mountain Maple seeds along a hiking trail in northeast Minnesota.  These seeds are some of the first bit of color to emerge in the fall season.  I love seeing them each year. They are such a vibrant red and really contrast with the abundant greens of the rest of the forest.  If you are lucky enough to see them fall to the ground you might be able to witness the "helicopter" motion that they can display as they fall.
