Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch

Pterocarpus indicus

(The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species put the Narra species in the Vulnerable conservation status.)

…my 2nd grader nephew named Kenji brought these home from school…

…and he demonstrates how to launch the pods…

…and concludes that the flat 4–6 cm diameter wing of each pod causes the fruit to propel in the air…
