[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
What you see here is the cover of a tree that has completely been eaten by a strangling fig tree.
The fig tree has copied the shape of his former host which once was a gumtree in the Daintree rainforst at Cape tribulation. Up in the tablelands another species of fig trees forms kind of a curtain and slowly tears its host to the ground. Will try to post an example later on.

Hi Thomas. This is a good, clear illustration of a fascinating but not-too-easily photographed subject. Well done indeed.

I was looking this picture some times, I didn't know what to write about it... Wonderful ^_^
