Interesting, once you know what to look for, you can really see. Still like them very much. I wonder where the point comes you cannot see "bodys" anymore. Might be different for every individual.

Ah, thanks for that link. Now I'll have that image etched in my brain whenever I go walking in the forest!  ;)

Sometimes I can see bodies or parts thereof, mostly parts. But aren't we being anthropomorphic? My initial reaction remains: these are quite eerie and powerful and command our attention. For their shapes, their contrast and what they suggest.
