As late in 2013 as December 17th I found a flameleaf sumac, that was turning warm colors. I’ve photographed Rhus lanceolata many times, but I still always look for different ways to portray it; this orb-bedecked picture was one. The location was the right-of-way beneath the power lines to the west of Morado Circle in my Great Hills neighborhood in Austin.
