Wordless Wednesday – Parasitic tree

by Deb on September 5, 2012

parasitic tree

We get lots of mistletoe parasites up here, but I had to look twice at this one. It probably isn’t a true parasite anymore because those root/trunks reach the ground, but it probably started as one when a seed lodged in the fork of the gum tree. There’s now a whole tree (some type of fig?) growing around and through the original eucalypt.

Amazing what you see when you look around.
