Great title, Brattcat; right on target. These trees are amazing...reaching out to find the sustenance they need.

A truly beautiful shot; poetic even!

Is that a pic of two trees or of one tree and one parasite???

katztales, it's one tree, one parasite.
Jacob, thanks...as always!

They look like they're dancing, but the tree maybe is not so happy...
