I’m not sure what is going on here. You can see the dark hole at the bottom of the hole in the tree, and what looks like a spider’s web stretched across pine needles bent into an oval.
So maybe a spider lives in the tree?
Or perhaps it’s a small animal getting ready to hibernate for the winter, dream catcher in place.
(I didn’t expect to hear the train whistle when I was taking the video. I was hoping just to capture the sound of rain. But when I played the video back, the train added an unexpected element to the video along with Fate’s glowing eyes. Jon found the whole thing a little spooky.)
I still can’t get over how the pine needles are bent to create an oval and how the whole thing floats in front of the hole in the tree like a protective doorway.
