I think I see fossils of animals in the design!

I had to look closely at this to see what it was! A beautiful sculpture - made by nature. Nice photo.

You have such a good eye; I would have walked right by this thinking it was an eyesore!

But beauty is not only in the eye of the beholder but the one who can bring it to life...

Thanks! And I hope you have a wonderful week!

Great eye. I don't think, actually I know, I wouldn't have taken a picture of this, but it is a great capture.

I subscribe to the comment of Vogon Poet: what B_SQUARED said is absolutely faultless (let's keep our morale up...)!!

Each line meaning a year in a tree's life, i guess this one has a lot of stories to tell. Those lines are like wrinkles on an old people's face...

One thing I love about your posts, brattcat: the photos alone are beautiful and intriguing, but the captions add such pearls of wisdom, wit and/or humor, magnifying the photo's impact.
