Pareidolia

Pareidolia, the phenomenon in which the human mind sees a familiar object (usually a face) in a random pattern. I recently took this photo of a birch polypore on a standing dead birch tree and felt that it resembled an elderly muppet with its false teeth removed. An American friend was reminded of a bitten into jelly and peanut butter sandwich.Photo of birch polypore

I think we can all agree that this fallen tree resembles an elephant lurking amongst the trees.Photo of tree resembling elephant
