    Hi Eliza.

    I see an owl. Sort of. A rather deformed one!!
    MJ

  7. A cross with arms reaching up ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

  8. Treah Pichette says:

    Eyes sunk under a rather prominent eyebrow. And it looks like a turtle (or a beetle?) in the lower right.

  9. A wide mouth with a mustache.

  10. An old man with great eyebrows and a beard. 🙂 Fun.

  11. An old man’s face or me looking in a mirror!!😊

  12. Dale says:

    I love this, Eliza! And I had to look up pareidolia – so bonus round.
    My first thought was an old man with frowning bushy eyebrows

  13. John says:

    A tree that was killed by a fence. Nice find, Eliza!

  14. Isha says:

    A wise old sage deep in thought… (Or me when I’m exhausted by excessive studying!) 😉

  15. shoreacres says:

    A woman sculpted in the style of John William Waterhouse, with those trademarked long, flowing robes.

  16. So lovely Eliza, the longer I look at the wood the more I see: a bird, a meditating woman (top centre) and a profile (Easter Island-style) on the right 💛

  17. sandyjwhite says:

    Reminds me of a ghost…….with its arms bent and hands covering its mouth!

  18. utahan15 says:

    a gremlin a sour face in a woody place.

  19. Debbie says:

    So right for the season at hand, Eliza! My first thought was that it looks like somebody frowning in disapproval. Then I thought it looked like a wise old owl.

  20. Kris P says:

    You’ve just expanded my vocabulary, Eliza. Thanks! I admit that I often see faces in stone and clouds.

  21. As a fan of tree faces, I immediately saw a face. One that was similar to what Alice above described. A cool photo, Eliza!

  22. I think my nightly outings with Harper have me seeing a fox in the woods everywhere!🐾😁

  23. When I turn it upside down, I see a bit of a bird with its head cocked to the side, wearing a very lousy toupee and very stoic lips.

  24. Ballerina with long legs and a short trunk.

  25. A sleeping Ent from “Lord of the Rings.”

  26. Kathy says:

    I see a cross–which feels like a sign of balance and hope. So many different perceptions here!

  27. Did anyone say The Grinch? I see his big ole eyebrows and that long grimacing face!

  28. Jet Eliot says:

    Definitely an emu.

  29. susurrus says:

    An alligator with one eye closed and the other peeping just above the barbed wire and I see the hint of a fox face towards the top.

  30. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Wow – I see an owl too

  31. Adele Brand says:

    I see an owl frowning as it ponders philosophical riddles about a mouse’s perspective on life.

  32. Irene says:

    What a great find. I see two faces on one trunk. Love it! 😊

  33. Oh … I didn’t know there was a word for that! Like others I see an owl. The downward texture of the wood resembles an owl’s feathers … if you use your imagination of course!

    Even though it is old and expired, I see growth – a cool shot along with the question 🙂
