Vine Maple Seeds
Like any member of the maple family, the winged seeds of the vine maple develop in pairs, which will dry, split, and "helicopter" to the ground on the wind where some of them will take root as part of the next generation. These seeds were photographed on Larch Mountain in Northern Oregon.
