OK, not the whole tree (sorry), but this was weird enough that I had to capture it... Ficus racemosa, "cluster fig", bears its fruit directly on the trunk of the tree...

A tree with the sort of trunk sometimes called "muscular-looking." My arms should look like those branches, but alas, they're more akin to those from B&W Mickey Mouse cartoons.

YUP! I think my biceps* have gone to join my triceps on the undersides of my arms, and those muscles seem very relaxed at all times, swinging down there like a hammock. Comes a point when there are too many "I remember when."

*I think "biceps" etc. is both singular and plural, as you never see "bicepses" or "bicepia"

Bicepses sounds like a disease and bicepia sounds like a photographic term, maybe that is why

Poinciana...this one is across the street from my house. Actually there are two of them, the tree on the left only has flowers on a few branches...this is the typical orange form, it's a small tree by poinciana standards

An urban tree, or small grove of trees.

Three more trees that have come down, all in the last few weeks.
1) A big, old dead tree that's been rotting in a standing position a long time finally couldn't support its own weight any longer;
2) a small birch that probably died some time ago. Its roots have been rotting and recent heavy rain loosened the soil enough to topple it. The snowmobile club will eventually clear it away and find a new place for their trail markers.
3) A healthy tree against which a much larger tree felled during a high wind this past year was partially leaning. Again the recent wet weather softened the soil enough that the roots of the little tree could no long support the extra weight on the trunk.

It's just a leaf, but it's attached to our maple tree. I thought the light shining through the leaves looked pretty cool, and took this with my K3 and Sigma 105 f2.8, shot wide open. Our tree has red leaves right from spring to fall, and lights right up when the sun hits it just right.


Here's the same tree on a different day. We had a thunderstorm rolling in. I set up for a quick timelapse, and was lucky enough to get this lightning strike.

Capturing a lightning bolt without an auto-triggering device is really tricky. MUCH easier at night. BTW, FYI the average duration of a single lightning bolt is about 0.2 seconds (TV = 1/5 second) which is just barely within human reaction time and shutter delay time (better to have the mirror up). A single strike is actually composed of over 50 discharges each of which lasts milliseconds and follow exactly the same path through the atmosphere ionized by the first extremely short discharge.

And, from what I understand, those secondary strikes which follow the path of the first bolt are from the step leaders you see that do not strike the ground.
