Kissing Trees?

The games trees play!

The games trees play!

As we were heading upstream from the Killiansburg Cave hiker/biker campsite, we chanced upon these two overly-affectionate lovebirds on the canal side of the towpath.  I’ve always been of the opinion that plant life is incapable of feeling love, as well as any of the other complicated  emotions that plague humanity.  However, now there is photographic proof that some trees smooch when they think others aren’t watching.  Unfortunately, they didn’t stop after I politely asked them to, and the situation got a little bit uncomfortable.

As I look at the tree on the right, I can see a closed eye with an eyebrow, cheekbones, and–perhaps–a nose.  Catching this crypto-botanical image of the kissing tree, in my opinion, is to flora what the Patterson-Gimlin film is to fauna.  With that being said, I hope that I never have to see another public display of affection between two trees.  Yuck!

    No problem! Honestly, I was really offended until I realized that they’re only trees. I have to give Candee props for always being on the alert for unique images. This was a good one!
