Dragon Tree? - Looks like a smashed nose on a dragon to me.

On a Sunday walk through a local park with my wife I came across many trees with odd growths/shapes. This is a shot of my favorite. I think it looks like a snubbed nose on a dragon. What do you see this photo as being? I have no idea what type of tree bears this knurled type of bark either. Any help identifying it is greatly appreciated. Do you look at natures things seeing something odd like this tree? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

hi G.B yes i do that a lot. at our local library theres atree with a knarled trunk that looks exactly like an elephants leg, even to the color and way the trunk ends in sortof toe like protusions. looks just like the leg of a big elephant. I even wrote a paper on this for a lesson in a writingclass. The bark looks like a gum tree.

I tink you may recall earlier this year a photo and discussion I had about the trees that looked like the apple throwing trees in "The Wizard of Oz". I love the old gnarled looking trees. Some awesome looking oddities in them most times. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I love to look at nature, clouds, wood....just about anything like that and see if I can find a picture. I love to do hidden objects type of games and puzzles. I will go check out the picture now and see what I can see.

I love looking at things to see what i can see in their shapes. Clouds especially. Depending on what i see...you can tell my mood. Some days a psychiatrist might have a field day with what i see! (or think im a total perv!)

I can see the picture now! It looks more like a dragon in the small thumbnail than close up. It makes a very good dragon! It would be neat if the leaves had turned bright red and were streaming behind it, like fire from its mouth! You certainly have a good eye for pictures, thanks for the smile!

I can't find the pic or the discussion in your profile so here's a quick response so that it'll bring it up and I can see it! Hey, even though I'm not really saying anything, it's another cent for ya while I try to see the picture!

It does look like a dragon. Very cool. I posted a comment on the pic also. I have two pics something like this. One is of a tree that looks like a stick bug to me, and the other is a tree that looks like a fence. I think I'll post the pics here for y'all to see.
