Buckeye tree with fruits

Leaves and fruits of a buckeye tree (Aesculus glabra).  The discoloration of the leaves is caused by a fungus, Guignardia aesculi, which is very common on buckeye trees.  The vegetation in the bottom part of the picture is the ever-present Amur honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii).  Along the Wabash Heritage trail, Lafayette side, September 4, 2011.
