An (extra)ordinary tree

There was a tree last weekend that I could not take my eyes off. A single tree, ordinary from the distance, but wonderful in a close-up, covered with mosses, lichens, even mushrooms and resting insects. I saw a lot and yet I probably only saw a fraction of what lived on it. And all of it looked even more charming in the light of afternoon autumn sun.

  2. Odd and beautiful. One of my favorite combination of things! :) Great photos!

  4. Yes, all on one tree!! It was a wonderful tree :) I love looking at the details of things and since my camera has a super macro tool and the sun was so nice, it was really easy to take these... I am glad they attract so much attention :)
