    I thought it might be fun to play a bit of a game, so hopefully there's enough interest in this so that others will play along.
    The rules:
    Anyone can post a pic regardless of who guesses correctly. How about we go with that then?
    Your photo must be related to the natural world, animal, plant etc., but nothing man made.

    Mesquite got it right. Alder. The orange colour shows when the wood is freshly cut, but sadly it fades.

    Mesquite's turn to post a picture.

    Alder? Wow, our alders here are huge if they get to wrist thickness. I never would have guessed.

    Field maple?
    Btw, I had the audacity to change the rules so that anyone can post a pic regardless of who guesses correctly in order to possibly get more folks to participate. Please don't anyone call for burning me at the stake:)
