Tenacity of Life

Years ago a farmer used this tree to attach some barbed wire. Over the years the tree has grown over the wire. Photo was taken at the Derby Hill Observatory and Helen Jahn Memorial Sanctuary (owned by the Onondaga Audubon Society), located along Lake Ontario. It is about 5 miles North of the Village of Mexico, New York.

How does a tree grow like this? When the tree was young there was "something" next to it that prevented it's straight upward growth -- most probably a fallen tree. The fallen tree has since rotted away, leaving this unusually shaped tree trunk. Photo was taken at the Derby Hill Observatory and Helen Jahn Memorial Sanctuary (owned by the Onondaga Audubon Society) located along Lake Ontario. It is about 5 miles north of the Village of Mexico, New York.

Look in any nook and cranny and you'll find living creatures clinging to life.
