While on a walk the other day, I encountered many unique tree characters. It seems that at each new turn or bend, I met another strange but beautiful tree creature. I made sure to document my findings and have provided them for you below. What tree creatures live in your neck of the woods?
lol tree cyclops love it
Thanks so much.
I like snake spirit!
Thanks so much.
You have a great eye for detail. I must take more notice of tree characters in future.
what a unique idea! thats interesting how much character those trees have ! 🙂 well done!
Those are great! I took a picture a few weeks ago of a tree in my yard and the way the snow was crusted on the bark made it look like a panda. I’ll have to post it sometime.
Yes, please do. Thanks.
I love this post 🙂 Thank you for sharing your insights again! Your many-eyed monster reminds me of a time when I read Greek mythology and could not walk through a forest without imagining myself surrounded by these incredible mythical beings. With every post, even the most simple moments or objects are given a warm sense of familiarity or quirk.
Thanks. I think most of us see creatures in the woods when we walk. 🙂
LOVE treeclops!!!! so glad to know i’m not the only one who sees faces in trees!
I can’t help but seem them. 🙂 I couldn’t imagine how creepy they’d be at night.
My mother has a picture of a tree in Washington state that she captured on a hike a few years ago that appears to be dropping its pants and mooning everyone. There are two large burls on the bottom of the tree, making perfect “cheeks.” I always laugh when I look at the photo. This was a great post. Thank you for sharing it.
Ha ha. That’s awesome. Would love to see that picture.
Some wonderful macro shots, there.
You have some unusual shots there… I like! I like! If you don’t mind my asking… what exactly was that stuff in ‘frothy’? It looked…. weird. 😉
I have no idea. Some sort of mildew maybe?
Thanks so much.
Dorothy: Oh! Apples! Oh – look!
The tree slaps Dorothy’s hand, refusing to have its apples picked:
Dorothy: Oh! Ouch!
First Apple Tree: “What do you think you’re doing?”
Dorothy: We’ve been walking a long way, and I was hungry and ~ did you say something?
First Apple Tree: She was hungry!
Second Apple Tree: She was hungry!
First Apple Tree: Well, how would you like to have someone come along and pick something off of you?
Dorothy: Oh dear, I keep forgetting we’re not in Kansas anymore.
🙂 good one.
This is awesome!
Thank you for this entry. I am an avid walker and I am very much a nature lover. I have thought about the different characteristics of trees. I am happy someone else has the same ideas about nature and trees.
I think that you are pretty amazing at blogging…and capturing moments…and being inspirational. So I did something a little wacky and nominated you for the Very Inspirational Blogger Award. No worries if you’ve been given this honor before…but if not, visit my blog and you’ll get the whole scoop!
Have a lovely day!
Thanks Emmie. That’s very kind of you.
I love the characteristics of the trees. Nature in general. Your post truly made me smile. Thanks!!
thanks so much. 🙂 ..
Awesome; I do see them all. Maybe being a fellow photographer also helps to see more. It all depends on mind set. Yes, our imaginative selves are live and kicking :). Bon diamche.
Thanks Barb. 🙂 Hope you are well.
Snake Spirit with its dash of colour particularly appeals to me.
thanks. 🙂 glad you like that one.

Love the one that looks just like an eye. When I sit among tree’s I can’t help but feel as though they all have their own unique tree energy. It’s almost as though they have personalities. Call me weird, but I feel like tree’s are spiritually “alive”, which is why the sight of a tree being cut down never fails to make me feel quite appalled.
Thanks. If your weird then I’m weird. Weird is good right?
I have no doubt, weird is good. 🙂
As always your eye has captured very interesting details .
Seth: Glad you took these images! As photographers, amateurs and pros alike, we tend to see many things others miss. I’m always pointing things out to my grand-daughters. Things like different colors in trees in bushes that could mean a bird could be watching you…things like that..Good Work, as usual!
So true. I’ll say “look at that, great photo.” And anyone with me looks at me like I am crazy.

Oh, those snaking vines look impressive but we hate them with a vengeance! All our land used to be down to vines and even though two thirds was cleared decades ago, those vines keep growing. We look like Tarzan and Jane trying to pull them out of the trees 😉
Sounds like kudzu. This is big in the South where I grew up. They brought it over from Asia many years ago and it’s taken over. They can’t kill it.
Your posts make me smile every morning. The way you see things is just remarkable and inspiring. Thanks for setting the mood for my days!
That’s very kind of you to say. Thanks.
I miss tree characters so much! This is the type of stuff I always used to notice in the woods–thank you so much for posting it. (Now I live in the big city & most of the tree characters I would describe as “malnourished mopey tree”.)
Trees got impressed by me, eye of a tiger to see, tongue of a snipper to feel, octopus hands they hold me, I know those are trees but , sure they imitate those who swing on their branches, eat away leaves and write on their trunk as if, it was freedom of speech..but ouch! those scribbles they hurt deep..as tattoes are not really a treat..:)
🙂 Wonderful. Thanks.
thank you 🙂
I really thought the branch was a snake for a second. Lol.
🙂 It was ready to get ya!
Very creative eye!
trees are so majestic! I love how you see them as characters, and I’ve seen in other posts how you also talk about tree art. thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much Ema. 🙂
lol…very cool shots…you have a great imagination!
Yes I think I do or I’m just a tad bit crazy. 😉 Nah, I think we’ll stick with great imagination. 🙂
i love treeclops! beautiful and creative!
Thanks so much. :P) Glad you like that one.
I love this pictures, especially big eye with tiny hand, the snakes and eating the pizza, 🙂
Thanks 🙂 Eating the pizza. 🙂 funny Thanks.
You have a great eye to detail! These are amazing Seth!! Every tree has its own living character. Amazing 🙂
Thanks Judy. 🙂
These are great! The woods can be a scary place sometimes. We have lots of creatures in our woods. Sometimes they give me a fright! You just never know if they are friend or foe! The Mom Person likes to look for the alphabet while we’re out walking.
That’s funny. I think you could take most of them no?
GORGEOUS. You have an excellent eye. Thank you for capturing the images.
Thank you for visiting and liking my page on justcherished.com

Thank you. ) Glad you like that one.

Fun way to look at trees. I wonder how many tree characters we could find in the woods at Menokin?
Hi Seth. Loved these shots! Here’s one of mine: http://www.flickr.com/photos/natureburbs/8479937391/
