If Trees Could Talk...

This lip smackingly strange stand of trees was discovered during one of our family hikes around the beautiful Elora gorge area (Ontario Canada)... they seemed fitting for an ST shot.

Wow!! They seem to have a lot to say in this shot!! I've never seen markings like this before. So fitting of a title and a great ST post!!

@Steven: It seems to be a fairly rare occurrence, usually affecting Beech trees. In my entire life of wandering forests I have never seen this phenomena anywhere else. Thanks a lot, Steven.

Happy ST ! They do look like lips. It probably would be scary to walk there at night.
