Suggester says: Fascinating macro photography - I would never have guessed what this was without reading the artist's comments. It's stunning how ordinary things can look so extraordinary up close - an alien planet indeed! ( Suggested by GraphiteColours and Featured by hellfirediva )

I remember a tree that looked like this from when I was a teenager. It grew in someone's front yard about 1- blocks from where my parents lived. It was the strangest tree I have seen.

It took me a while to figure this out. From far away before clicking on the image I thought they were pencils you sharpened in an odd way. Then it seemed like digital art, reminded me of what a bunch of gnomes houses might look like. Amazing idea and capture. congrats in DD

And I can imagine that somewhere on that thorny branch, a group of ants embark on a quest to slay the ladybug. (Maybe they were just out of the shot)

Is it awesome that I immediately knew what tree this was just by glancing at the thumbnail? xD

Amazing shot and concept, and very well executed. It really does look like some inhospitable and alien world.
