AKA--The Claw

While out hunting, I stumbled upon this tree. I could hear something making scratching sounds and I thought it could be a buck rubbing his horns against at tree. When I got to where I heard the sound, there wasn't a buck in site. I did see this tree and it managed to be perfectly still while I stared at it. I sat there for a while and it refused to move. While I was sitting there, a squirrel came down the tree and started to run towards the fingers. I swear one of the fingers twitched and the squirrel did an about face and scampered back up the tree. The wind picked up and a shiver went up my back. As I walked away I heard a sigh of relief, and to this day I'm not sure whether it was the wind, the squirrel or the tree. Strange things happen in the woods.

When I see this scene and stare at it I feel that I heard a noise too. I stared at the three fingers and I can swear that I saw it moving slightly. Great shot and good narrative too tick. Don't talk to the tree!

Tick, your picture moved me to think of our American history and your narrative drifted me off into a spiritual connection; with the land, the tree, and nature herself.

I wish I was a Glow Worm, a Glow Worm's never glum, 'cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?

Owd Fella Tick (OFT), a great and well captured find. Your narrative is an original and excellent one too. As old salt, I don't believe in fairy tales, but you made me doubt now, 😜 !
S+F. Well done and thanks, 👍!
