Amazing Nature Contest: Thematic Challenge - #4/5/21

in Amazing Nature2 months ago


There are a lot of things going on in nature that can surprise a person. There is still something to discover and something to admire.

Greetings to all fans of Amazing Nature Community

Sometimes I "break my head" and wonder what can be seen while walking in nature. I will present one such "nut (puzzle)" to you, as a new topic. There are many plants that “live together” in simbiosis. However, you will be looking for a "coexistence" of plants that could be called


Your task is:

  • take a documentary photo
  • try to determine which plants you found in "non-traditional simbiosis"
  • Of course add a description and your observations


If you have no idea what to look for, I have a little inspiration for you again :-)

I have been walking around this century-old oak tree for several years.


I once noticed that a new shoot was growing in the place after the removed branch. I was a little surprised. This is not common with such old oaks.
On closer inspection, I was even more surprised. It was not an oak tree, but a young ash tree.


How could something like this happen?
There are at least two options. Either a wind from a nearby tree blew a shift of ash here, or (probably more) a bird dropped its droppings with a seed.

Nature took care of the rest :-). In the cavity above the rest of the branch, dust settled over the years, which was a breeding ground for the ash seed. Old and rotten oak wood allowed the small ash tree to take root. The small ash can thus draw the necessary nutrients and in return passes on part of its photosynthesis products to the oak. Unconventional, but perfect simbiosis :-).

I wish you many nice experiences in fulfilling this challenge.

Hello. Here my entry

Symbiosis! this week @bucipuci sent me headlong into dusting off my high scho...

Thank you for your link.
Welcome to the competition :-)


Dear @bucipuci, I have just "created" this post but have a doubt if it matches the topic. For me, it looks like symbiosis but what do you think? It your answer is YES, then the second question - can my link be here or should I place it somewhere else (that is strange to be alone with my entry here 🙂)

Thank you for your link. As I wrote in the comment below your article, your article does not match the fully specified topic. But it is definitely suitable for the main competition :-)


Thank you for the reply. You know that I had a doubt about that 🙃

Sometimes I do the topic of "extreme places of growth". There, your article would fit perfectly :-)

but it will expire till then 😏, unfortunately. I placed it in the main contest as you suggested🌹

When the topic is current, you will definitely find a suitable object :-)
Your article will definitely interest someone :-)

Wuaoooo que interesante imagen felicitaciones!
