Seed pod from the Sweet Gum Tree/Liquidamber styraciflua
The female flowers are in a small greenish ball. Later they become over I inch (2.5 cm) in diameter and produce winged seeds about 1/2 inch(13mm) long. Over 20 songbirds feed on the seeds. The balls hurt when stepped on barefoot and sometimes roll when stepped on.
