Well, this photo was from last spring, so it’s way behind it’s time. But with the better part of last week in the 50s (F), it seems an appropriate shot to share. It’s hard not to dream of spring, though I was hardening up for winter (and freezing dog walks). Going to have to recalibrate again. In the meanwhile, I can enjoy these colors and light-jacket wearing. (Black and white version below.)
Note: originally incorrectly id’d as sugar maple. Hat tip to therealcinder in the comments.

Nice shot. Since I was expecting some sort of insect, at first glance I thought it was a bunch of ladybugs with a unique pattern. :)
i know this is old as hell but I don’t think its a sugar maple, their buds are pointy and brown
I do believe you are correct. It’s from a tree in my yard and I realized much later. Blog post didn’t get the memo until now. Thanks!
