Intriguing Sights no.6

During a country walk a few days ago I happened upon a peculiarly shaped ash tree.

Peculiarly shaped ash tree, with two ‘legs’

It reminded me of a giraffe.

As ash tree that looks like a giraffe.

  1. I thought it was a deer with a long neck :) (indigenous species)

  2. That is really weird!! I can only think that it was cut off or bent over at an angle at some early stage, and it refused to give up! Definitely a very long-necked giraffe! A new species for Scotland – it is your right to give it a Latin name, I think!

    • Isn’t it odd? I looked at it for quite a while to try and come up with a reason for it having grown like that but I’m afraid I drew a blank. I would love to give it a Latin name. :-)

  3. cool!

  4. Wow! How cool is that!!

  5. Very cool tree…can’t wait to show this to my two grandsons who will get a kick out of this.

  6. You have a good eye – that really looks like a giraffe!

  7. LOL, it does look like a giraffe!!
    When you have some spare time, you should paint is black and yellow :)
    (or delegate it to your assisitants ;)

  8. He looks like he’s dressed for a parade.

  9. flipping tablet never posted the comment – how annoying

    clearly too much tea

    • I know you won’t agree with me on this point Scott, but I would suggest that the problem was more of the ‘not enough tea’ variety. I was gasping for a cuppa after my walk and the shock of encountering a small giraffe.
