Photographer: Peter Gorman
Locality: Bluffview, Wisconsin, United States (43.383717, -89.798104)
Notes: Shagbark Hickory (Carya ovata), Baxter's Hollow State Natural Area, Wisconsin. It took me a while to identify this, but it's so unusual I think I'll remember it. This is a young sapling, and the leaves are sprouting at the very tip, about 7 feet up.
