Caption: High speed photograph (stroboscopic flash) of the seed of a maple tree. It belongs to the genus known as Acer which includes about 200 species of generally deciduous trees and shrubs, notable for their ornamental foliage. The seeds, also known as keys, have prominent wings and are very similar to a propeller. (See T990/037 for a picture of a model of a propeller)
