A luminous Japanese maple

Heading off on an after-dinner walk, I noticed our neighbors' Japanese maple has turned a wonderfully brilliant red.

I guess the 40° F-ish lows over the last few nights triggered anthocyanin production, as it certainly wasn't so brilliant in the last few days.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
