    Last October, I bought an extra used camera for a wedding, and recently listed it on Craigslist. A guy offered his DJI Spark Drone. I'm surprised how stable the unit can fly. I'm a complete newb to controls, and did a practice run at an urban coast redwood tree. And it looks like the tree may have albino foliage. One guy who is somewhat an albino redwood expert replied that the foliage is albino. Anyway, here's a sample I shared on Youtube.

    Never heard of an albino tree before. There appears to be some green due to the chlorophyll, right?

    Every albino redwood or albino growth has to emerge and remain attached to some other green tree that has chlorophyll to produce food. The albino don't do photosynthesis. There are less than 300 naturally occurring, so somewhat rare.
