Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Big Leaf Maple Blooms” by Bob Faucher. Location: Washington.
“Very large big leaf maple trees live in the woods where I live,” says Faucher. “These trees are now beginning to bloom. With soft light this early morning, light rain and a soft breeze, the clusters stood out against the dark trunks and shadows of the woods. As a wind-pollinated species, the granules will soon be filling the air, forming a golden layer on everything.”
