Red Maple Flowers

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 26 February 2008 in Plant & Nature.

I cut some branches from a red maple tree and brought them indoors to "force," speed up their development. Here is a photo of their flowers taken indoors with light from the setting sun coming in the window. I used a macro lens with a 1:1 adaptor filter, and a tripod. Each flower is about 3/4 inches from top to bottom.
