Knots in the wood

Every once in a while, we come across things that make us stop and stare for a bit. Like these strange growths on the trunk of an otherwise normal-ish-looking tree.

I don’t know enough about forestry or botany to explain how a tree trunk ends up looking like this.

But I DO know that I like what I see, and considering all the other weird stuff that stops me in my tracks, it’s obvious my photo-trigger bar is set pretty low.

Which, if I’m being honest, makes me a terrible person on group walks, because everyone’s always forced to wait for me. Or explain to strangers and passers-by why the weird guy over there is lying on the ground and pointing his camera at an exposed root. Or a squirrel. Or… We can’t have it all, apparently. I’m strangely good with that.
