Tree Anomaly

two different trees combine
I shared a photo of this a long time ago, with the old camera. The new camera requires another look at the unusual tree anomaly. At some point during their growth two different types of trees merged. The horizontal branch and vertical trunk are two different trees. They have completely fused. The horizontal branch is now dead, however shown near the juncture is the start of a strangler fig. Maybe the fig can get established and take over making the story even more interesting.
