helicopters 2

I remember seedpods similar to these in my childhood, only those were a dull brown by the time I noticed them lying on the ground.  My friends and I called them helicopters after the way they whirred around and around back to earth after being thrown up into the air above our heads.

These ones were found hanging from a tree, looking like a natural mobile sculpture as they balanced delicately from their branched stem.
