Support (ThursdayTreeLove)

Another set of photos from the Ross Island in the Andaman's. Ficus trees are known and easily identifiable from their aerial roots. At times these from a 'forest' of sorts. At times they grow over and engulf any man-made structure that they grow beside or on. 

Over time, the roots almost completely cover up the cement and concrete and it becomes difficult to decide if the brick structure is supporting the tree or the tree is holding the bricks together!

See for yourself!




The Ficus trees growing in the temples at Angkor Wat in Cambodia are very famous and you may have seen pictures of them or even visited. 

I am joining Parul in her ThursdayTreeLove blog hop. Do head over to see some fantastic trees from around the world. 
Better still, join in with a photo of a tree that has caught your eye!

I have to go back to Andamans for Ross Island. I want to go to Cambodia too. Those trees look divine to me. So beautiful and spreading as if to take care of the world. I am so glad you shared this one from Ross island. Do the deers roam around so freely there?

@Parul Yes, Deer were in large numbers and moved freely when we visited in 2017. Cambodia is on my travel wish list too.. Hope to make it some time! Happy to participate !
