Could you help me identify this tree by its flower?

I took a picture of this tree flower in MA. It was on somebody's lawn - so, most probably, not native.

Thank you!

Not a flower, but the emerging leaves of an Acer.

Thedecoguy - thanks a lot!
But they do emerge from the flower, don't they?
And finally - any idea of what kind of acer it is? Red maple?
Thanks!

Leaves emerge from Leaf Buds, flowers from Flower Buds.
