Staghorn Sumac hmmm - I've changed my mind about this one. The distribution map and the site I use to ID local plants don't show this species out here, but it definitely looks much, much more like this species than Rhus glabra. I see it often, so I'm guessing it was brought out as an ornamental and escaped.

    1. lol - light provided all by mother nature. I did like the way the edge was getting a little highlight while it was cloudy enough to fill in the shadows. Posted 2 years ago
