Capparaceae - capparis

I've been looking at these bright red seedpods for years without knowing the name. At last an identification! (Capparaceae) capparis. Again, thanks to Robin Foster at Field Museum Chicago for sharing his knowledge. We never see many of these trees around the Bosque, but the next time I do see one, I can look at it differently. I'll also try to get a better picture! Groan.
