Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is “grand”. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.
I have a grand concept to share with you. I believe that some trees used to be dragons, and I have photographic proof. If you look carefully at trees, you may see it too.
On this first tree, you can clearly see that the shape of these tree branches is a dragon. It may not show well on this photo, but it was a VERY large dragon. Let’s call it a grand dragon.
My kids and I stumbled upon this tree trunk during a recent hike. This is another unmistakable proof that trees used to be dragons. This is what we saw at first from behind.
And then from the side.
Here are a couple of close-ups of the dragon’s head.
Hi buddy, take it easy!
Yup, there be dragons….
I bet you see some in your neck of the woods too!
Yes I can see the ‘Grand’ dragon. These images remind me of a beautiful anime movie “Princess Mononoke” by Hayo Miyazaki where we learn about spirits that reside in trees.
oh, spirits in trees, I can easily imagine that.
Dragons, they’re everywhere! If you know where to look. Obviously you do 😉
Oh, I guess I have to look in more places now. I definitely see them in clouds sometimes, usually when I don’t have my camera handy like yesterday.
Well you know, dragons are very shy, they don’t usually like being photographed. Somehow they always know when a person has their camera or not. They’re sneaky that way 😉
I think you’re on to something!
LOL you’re right Milka, a dragon it is! How grand that you spotted it before it slicked away!
I like that idea! I’ve noticed dragons in trees before and now it all makes sense. 🙂
You need to take pictures of those dragons.
That’s true! Those dragons are gone for now because the leaves are all gone but hopefully they’ll reappear in the spring. You never know though – dragons are pretty fickle.
You’ll have to look for them in the spring. My son spotted a nest in a bare tree this afternoon, a pretty neat sight.
I have a sea serpent and a dragon too from drift wood. These are great photos. You and I would have a lot of fun on a photo shoot together!! 🙂
You have a lot more trees where you are so I bet there’s a lot of find. I feel very lucky when I find something like that here. This reminds me I find a cool snail out of a tree branch recently. I’ll have to share that soon.
Thhank you for being you
