WW - Dryads

A new dryad on one of the Chase's black poplars? Taken on a pleasant Sunday afternoon



I had to check that my favourite dryad was still there. Unsurprisingly he most certainly was! This week's entry for the Tuesday and Wednesday edition of Wordless Wednesday.

That's amazing. The second one is so clearly a dryad!

SandyCarlson said...

Dryads never moved into the woods around here. No wonder we seem to lack spirit!

Great shots.

Sue said...

Very cool! Spooky looking shots :)

We often go looking for them here in the ancient Canadian forests!

Happy WW :)

Drayds have their own plastic surgeons. They're called lumberjacks. :)

Your old man could use a nose job. Maybe someone has a small hatchet?

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

I'm surprised at the people here commenting that they don't know what a dryad is. They must not be big fans of fantasy novels and Celtic lore.

the teach said...

Marvelous shots of wood nymphs that you see there...:)

Nunyaa said...

I have no idea what a dryad is either, sorry.

ellen b said...

So interesting. I like the second dryad best! Enjoy...

Why does the British Isles get all the fascinating trees? These are such fantastic photos. No wonder so many legends and myths come from there.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Great texture and the B&W is perfect for it.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone. I will get around to visit as soon as I can.

Raven said...

Cool shots. Nice to know that your local dryads will be there when you need to call on them. Do you think you were a Druid in a previous life? I've always liked the idea of Druids...

Shelia said...

Wow, isn't that something? Very interesting.

Happy WW!

Emmyrose said...

There are indeed quite a few dryads facing the contemplator, especially in the second photo.
Enjoyed this, Jams. Thanks.

Roger said...

Celeste said...

Interesting shots. My is up but not what I was going to post

I didn't know what dryad was either! Thanks for teaching us new things, Jams!

Leonard said...

you must be amazed by the creativity of nature!

happy WW!

Starrlight said...

I can not see the word Dryas without being transported back to my Everquest days and the dryads in game. Whispy wenches who would punch the hell out of you.

Those are much nicer ;0 Happy WW!

jams o donnell said...

Red Wine drinkers can now wipe that wine off their smile!

Wine Wipes are an innovative new product created especially for red wine drinkers who fall victim to stain left on their teeth and smile from drinking red wine.

Visit us at www.winewipes.com

Mary Ferguson was a 32 year old self professed lover of red wine. Unfortunately for Mary, red wine returned that love in the form of a nasty red wine film on her teeth and mouth. But she never let it bother her.. until the night she met Jack.

Sparks flew as Jack bellied up to the bar and ordered a big bodied bottle of red wine. This was love at first sight. Jack and Mary drank and danced the night away. And then, she did the unforgivable… She smiled. Her once pearly white teeth had morphed into a red stained filthy looking mouth. Jack tried to look away but couldn’t contain the disgust on his face. Mary quickly excused her self to the bathroom and maniacally attempted to scrub the wine off her mouth, but it was to no avail. Mary walked out of the bathroom with stained teeth and a newly chaffed tongue. By the time she returned, Jack had vanished, and left nothing for Mary but the bill… If she had only had a Wine Wipe.

Mary’s dilemma is common tale. Most red wine drinkers fall victim to this social fopah. Whether you call it ‘tannin teeth, malbec mouth, red badge of courage, or wine tattoo’, most red wine drinkers have experienced the unattractive dark film that red wine stain leaves on their smile. They have either excepted purple teeth as part of the experience or begrudgingly switched to Chardonnay… Until Now.

Wine Wipes are an innovative new product that will change the way people look at you while you when you drink red wine. Wine Wipes quickly and easily remove red wine stain with a gentle orange blossom flavor that won’t interfere with the wine tasting experience, making Wine Wipes the perfect pairing to any glass of red wine,

Wine Wipes are manufactured by Borracha LLC, located in San Luis Obispo County, California. Borracha creates innovative products for social drinkers while using a portion of the proceeds to support water projects in the developing world.
