A little different tree. 
There is even a bonus at the bottom left in the tree  ::)

Old Lime tree avenue - Lime trees produce lots of nectar so good trees for bees!

This old and very gnarled sycamore is just down the street from my house.  It has always been fascinating to me.  Fuji X-Pro2 with adapted Voigtlander Ultron 28/2 lens.

Also down the street from my house is a lot filled with old oak and pecan trees.  They are also fascinating subjects for me.  Fuji X-Pro 1 with 16/2.8 Fujinon lens.

I can understand why - it has a unique character :-)

I feel that this old tree almost looks back at me with two faces on the trunk  :-\

Indeed.  I've lived here for 30 years and I've watched this tree lose branches and undergo numerous surgeries.  I'm so glad the owners of the lot have never had it taken down.  To me it has a special beauty.

Love your "two-faced" tree Lars.
I found one this morning that had been caught doing what it shouldn't have been doing!

Many thanks Colin - very funny, your tree face looks quite guilt-ridden! Do you know if it's mother nature that's pulling our legs or did someone saw/carve it?

They nearly all have similar crescent marks

I'm not sure but think these are poplar trees as I found this when googlng

Yes, I googled it too and can see those "eyes" are natural but the "face" is really special. The old poplars (I think) we have in the area are with deep grooves.

Another old tree with character (injury, virus, fungus or cancer burl as I understand).
