I'm enjoying the symmetry and how you have so carefully photographed this so perfectly. I can't see how it could be done better!

This next picture reminds of the pictures in Cambodia of the interface between roots and ancient temples!

Reminds me, in a spiritual way of the giant fig tree roots on the remnants of temples at Angkor Wat!

Adrian,

This seems like the cursive script of an ancient text!

It's only seemingly the same when one looks back, just like a living creature.

Reginald,

I missed these. I wonder how big they are? Interesting repeat patterns, presumably, each "whirl" is one separate animal?
