Does it getting any more honest? I LOVE trees! And this one has a penthouse apartment for some lucky wildlife in that massive burl. Yet the tree lives on, adapting to injury and making room for friends. Can you imagine the view? The predator vantage point? The prey's advantage?
A few feathers, fur and some spider silk, and I would be one happy rodent if it were possible for me to shape-shift. Or perhaps as an owl I would add a dining table so when I return with my kill I could eat it in leisure.
