Red Maple helicopters. Waiting for the first hard weather to fly. Maples except for one species are all found in the northern hemisphere.

Another surprising fact, maple seed pods are edible. Raw seeds have a slight bitter taste to them but cooked and they are sweet. You can find directions on line on how to prepare them. I have never prepared them myself but I have had trail mix that has the cooked seeds in it. Not bad tasting ! ( not found in stores, home made ) Amazing what you can find in nature that would sustain you in a pinch.
