Horse-chestnut inflorescence

Eight-inch-tall flower on a horse-chestnut tree next to the river on Memorial Drive.  The flower is andromonoeceous: it has male flowerlets (with just stamens) and hermaphroditic flowerlets (with stamens and pistil).  If only I hadn't made it so blurry you would be able to see that for yourself.
