If a tree falls in a forest……..

Seen in the rain forest in Costa Rica. (Click on image for a larger view, and tell me that you can also see an animal’s head here.)


Do you believe in Tree Spirits? I could feel that eye watching me.

“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanates from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

  2. Tree Spirits with a sense of humour I think Sylvia !
    Makes a walk SO interesting being accosted by such sights .
    I’ve a few like this lurking in the archives …

  3. Interesting that because of the overhead canopy restricting light things below tend to grow quite/very slowly, yet when one of these giants falls or is cut down there is a frantic race to fill the place vacated and it’s said one can almost see the small trees growing!

  4. There is a soul in that face…it screams at you from the eye. And then the mouth seems to echo a sound of pain/loss/frustration maybe at facing the end. It is beautiful.
