    Pareidoliac ... But How Often Do You See A Squirrel Riding A Gator In A Tree?

    Yes, I'm a cloud gazer ... I got that way from lying on the ground with my mom and brothers while trying to find shapes in the clouds.

    It didn't help that my wife finds unusually shaped rocks (some pics used to be on another thread until photobucket decided it was ok to hold my images for ransom) and paints them so that they look like real rabbits, turtles, etc.

    Today I was watching the tree rats playing in the neighbor's yard and there were two of them playing on a flat piece where a branch had broken off of their tree some time back.

    Thought the pics could be okay, so I shot a couple ... but when I looked at them in the camera, I couldn't believe what I thought I saw.

    It looks like an alligator's head and neck coming out of the tree ... as well as his right front leg.

    Only the exposure and sharpness have been altered, otherwise the photos are unedited.

    We got home one evening and she saw this large rock in our driveway and told me she saw a rabbit. Stupid me, I kept looking for a cottontail.

    She picked up the rock, and showed me the rabbit ... then she painted it, placed it in a basket and sold it.

    It means ... gators are sneaky and will stoop to anything for a squirrel dinner.

    Now that's talent! She saw something, and let the rest of us see it. Very cool.

    All kidding aside, it really does look like a gator, and that squirrel is toast.

    Sure does look like an alligator with a squirrel on it's snout. The painted rocks by your wife are wonderful.

    Great capture! Maybe it is the King Tree Rat on his trusty steed going to his Acorn plantation! Your wife does some excellent work with the rock painting!

    Those rocks are very cool. She defiantly needs to put some in a local craft show.

    Thanks, I think she's pretty good ... she has a different opinion. Why?

    ... and there's the reason she has a different opinion: everyone at the craft shows and various fairs like her work but she still has almost every last one. No one buys. Set up website and etsy store, she can't sell them at a price that pays for her time (figured at minimum wage no less).

    On of my aunts did dozens of those for her nieces and nephews which is what gave my wife the idea. You have a treasure there if someone cared enough to give their time and talents to you. They must think a lot of you to give you such a personal gift. BTW, the expression on the cat's face probably reflects how the giver feels about the one they created the gift for.

    Be well all!

    While I enjoy reading about all the treasures, my main interest is digging up the history of my farm
    I have no "vision" / "imagination" so I am very impressed!
