One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Acer campbellii subsp. flabellatum at the top of China Valley
I admire the red samaras on this maple every year. If I had the room, I'd grow it in my garden just to watch the morning sun shine through them. Come to think of it, lots of maples have red parts at some time during the year and they all look good with the sun shining through them.
