The tree sees you

I have posted about beech eyes before. These are marks on the trunks of beech trees (Fagus grandifolia) where branches used to be. This is the best one I have so far noticed. It was on a relatively young tree. I suspect that as the trunk gets larger this particular eye will lose its almost perfect shape.

If we could only fit it with a monocle...

A perfect tree eye! It looks like a black and white image of pale blue human eye.
