Happy Little Tree?

tree face

Even though it’s already 85 degrees and likely on its way to 100 again despite the calendar now reading September, my backyard oak tree has been raining acorns for the last couple weeks, and the squirrels have been quite active… and were especially so this morning.  So I took about 15 minutes to see if I could get any good pictures, and wound up taking quite a few.  I was going over them and cropping them for my squirrel photo archive, when I hit the second to last picture I took, which is the image above.

Maybe it just looks like an ordinary image to you, and it certainly doesn’t have a squirrel in it… as unfortunately, many of the pictures I end up taking do not.  However, as soon as I saw this picture, my eyes locked on to one strange illusion in this picture that I now have absolutely no way of ever unseeing…. and it’s creepy as hell!!!

Let me do a John Madden for you and point out what I’m talking about….

HOLY #@*$!!!!!!

HOLY #@*$!!!!!!

Now two people can look at a picture and see two completely different things, but tell me that’s not a fucking face staring back at me from that tree!!!!  I’m not sure whose face it is… it kinda looks like a mug one of our early Presidents might have on paper money.  Whatever it is, it’s as creepy as hell, and sure didn’t show up in any of the other photos I took today, because I don’t think I could have possibly not noticed it.

Apparently, like the infamous face on Mars, it’s an illusion that is most apparent from a distance, since zooming in on it takes away a lot of its clarity….



Sheesh, I really hope I don’t end up wandering into my backyard one day and come face to face with something like this….

You got a problem with my acorns?  How about I start throwing squirrels at you and your straw for brains little friend!?!?

    Looks like Grandmother Willow gone bad!

    • That’s funny, because I had to look up Grandmother Willow… and I have a Pocahontas glass on my shelf behind me! Of course, that’s just because my sister worked at Burger King when that movie came out, and they were the fast food promotional tie-in for Pocahontas. I have no idea how I still have that glass after all these years though….

    It looks quite serene which is a good sign. It is unusual though. I haven’t seen a face on a tree before but I saw that one immediately. Looks like a tree elf. 🙂

    I guess the squirrels, nuts falling and an image on the tree would make me put it all together as a positive Johnny Appleseed kind of face… not creepy to me, for some reason! My opinion, though!
