Agree this is a nice series -- as usual. Been a long time since I have seen a sweet gum tree. We had 2 in our yard when I was growing up in MS, and nhmom is correct, stepping on the "fruit" barefoot hurts like the dickens.

Patty - You are too fast for me - I didn't even notice your post while I was busy posting!

Kevin - Indeed a very nice lens, so glad I was able to find a (fairly) affordable copy.

Hans - Glad you enjoyed the pictures and the words too! Such an amazing world we live in...

Tsquare - Thanks for your kind words. Sweetgums are pretty common here, and are definitely a strong encouragement to keeping your shoes on!

Great bird shots. The mild weather is a boon for you and a bust for us. Mild weather to our has kept many of our Bald Eagle visitors up north as they have had more open water and are able to fish.

Beautiful shots as always Mole. you remind me that natural beauty is everywhere -- if you take the time to see it. My wife used to make dried floral ornamental arrangements, and she often used sweetgum seed pods.
