20. Staghorn Sumac

Got this photo of Rhus typhina (hirta) a few weeks ago when the berries were bright. I walked by this spot on Sunday and the berries look dark and drying. Part of the Cashew family (others in this family include poison ivy and mango), the leaves of the Staghorn Sumac as well as the Dwarf and Smooth Sumacs turn red in the fall.
