I was away from my image processing station, unable to post this on Halloween but… better late than never (?)

In this… “slow motion” capture of a deadly race to the top, an English Ivy (an invasive plant) slowly covers¬† a native evergreen, using its bark as a staircase to the sky.

Unfolding somewhere deep in a Pacific Northwest forest, this is a drama with a highly predictable outcome.¬† Unless something happens to stop its spread, eventually the vine will win this race and the tree shall die in a leafy grave… starving for sunlight.

A tale of “natural” horror… (Unless you’re rooting for the vine.)
