My maple tree in August

I've secretly adopted this tree (in a nearby park) and am going to try to take a series of shots throughout the year to follow its progression through the seasons. The first one I took of it was in July.

Thank you for stopping by and for your encouraging comments and favs. They mean so much to me.
I guess the next one will be very colorful! Looking forward to the series.

I like the idea of adopting a tree. I bet it will look even more glorious in Autumn.

Wonderful idea. Have you seen this: http://thattree.net/ I first saw him on CBS Sunday Morning about a yr ago and have followed him ever since. Every photo he's taken involves that same tree. It's like "why didn't I think of that?" :-)

@cimes1 Thank you Carole and I have never heard of the fellow you mentioned. I clicked on your link to check it out. That is a great idea. I think I will follow him, too.

@pyrrhula Thank you Pyrrhula. I'm not sure, but I'm guessing it's a Sugar Maple tree. I'll have to look at the leaves a little closer and see if I can figure out exactly what kind it is.
