Show-Off Sweetgum

On Sunday, we went to a fundraising event at Birdsong Nature Center. We hiked the woodland trails for a couple of miles. Mostly, we saw early fall colors but this one small sweetgum off the trail in the distance, refused to be missed as it was quite the show-off peeking out from  behind the charred pine. This is one of the early plantations that has long practiced fire ecology and regularly burns areas to better manage their forests.

When you're that pretty, you can show off all you want. I like the way you included the texture of its pine tree neighbor.
