Do You See What I See?

{REPOST as I accidently deleted earlier}

Hiking out of Sequoia National Park I came upon this Giant Sequoia with this scar at its trunk. It reminded me so much of watching clouds as a kid. I see more animals each time I stare at it. A California sea Lion upper left 1/3. A canine type hind 1/4 middle right and even an elephant and octopus.

All feedback is welcome.

I am curious what you see.

I find the green branches distracting some but I think is does add depth. I will not be ever remove items physically in nature and cloning will affect image quality too much.
