photographing and learning about wildlife
Almost forgot to upload all my spottings of the trees around here. This is a silver maple, it's one of the many trees grown at the college gardens here in Independence. This is a relatively young member of the species, as silver maples can get huge, up to 84 feet tall. Mature silver maples also have, well, silver bark.
Native to most of the Eastern US and up into Canada.
