What kind of oak is this?

I believe it's an oak. Location is central Georgia. Pictures were taken a few months ago when the acorns were small and still green. Now they are much bigger.Thanks everyone.

Either falcata or laevis. Hard to tell from the pics

For those of us that are not up on our Latin....
Falcata = Southern Red Oak
Laevis = Turkey Oak

I don't mind when folks use the Latin name and I agree it can reduce confusion, but for folks like me that ain't real smart can we also "dumb it down" as well?:D Without my google search - I would be lost!

Thanks for the feedback guys. This is a tough one for me to identify because some of the leaves vary in shape/number of blades.

A little off subject, but does anyone else spend vacations looking at strange trees/plants when far from home? I'm lucky my wife is interested in plants too.
