What about "walking tree roots?" The type of tree shown in today's photo is sometimes referred to as having walking roots because the roots seem to step out in new directions, and the tree is supported by the maze of legs of the roots.
Do the roots walk in the daytime or at night, or both? I don't know. It is probably a silly question as it probably does not make any difference to the roots.
I took this photo on the grounds of the Capitan Suizo Resort, which is why the tree is lighted at night.
This week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site we are showing photos of Uxmal, a spectacular Mayan site in the Yucatan that is often overlooked because nearby Chichen Itza is better known. It is well worth a visit.
