Pagan Eye: Wooden thing...

While I was enjoying a woodland walk with my partner I saw this tree with a strange appendage growing out of its bark. It looked so odd that I had to photograph it.

But my partner and I couldn't agree on what it actually looked like. Personally, I thought it was just like a penis - except of course that it was made of wood and growing from a tree - but my partner said they had never seen a male member look anything like that.

What do you think?

On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it. I'm not quite sure what I'll be including - it could be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture.

If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to badwitch1234@gmail.com Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.

Yep, I think I agree with you. Maybe it's because they are used to looking down rather than at their penis and therefore see it as looking different.

If you feel like touching it, make sure you put a prophylactic on it. You wouldn't wanna get Dutch Elm Disease!!!

It looks like a lizard to me - I can see an eye , gills , a mouth.

This is a woodland moth, simply a moth that has found its way, can you say the same thing?

Interesting photo. What kind of tree was it growing on? I'd say a penis and if it were an oak it would definitely make sense. In my experience, from shamanic journeying, all the oaks I've met have been male.

I think it was an oak tree. The wood was mostly oaks and hornbeams :)
