Beech tree

From the same walk as yesterday, this is a beech tree in the woods above Beaufront Castle.  Half way up there seems to be a creature – at first I thought it was an over-sized bee but now I am not so sure. Suggestions are welcome 🙂 :

    Oh, that’s the Great Northern Wood Gnome…

  2. Looks like the tree is home to a number of slumbering Dryads!

      My classical education is lacking Sarah, I had to look that up 🙂

      • My mum had us reading Fantasy and Faerie tales as youngsters and I still love it 🙂 Funnily enough my favourite butterfly at the Wisley event is called a Tree Nymph!

    Fresh water salamander… Excellent photo, you’ve perfectly portrayed the immense character of the tree.

    I suspect it’s an inverted dragonfly….giant of course 🙂

    I don’t see the bee. For once, I only see a misshapen trunk. 😉

    Oh… there it is… Such a gorgeous beech tree!
    I love it, Robin.

      Many thanks Malin, unfortunately not as magnificent as it once was – two large sections came down in the autumn storms.
