    No. It’s “The Tree if Life” in Disney's Animal Kingdom. It is 145 feet tall and 50 feet wide at the base. There are over 102,000 man made leaves on the branches and over 300 animals carved into the trunk. The base holds an auditorium, where the show “Its A Bugs’ Life” has been playing for 30+ years. The tree is built on an oil rig, which was installed upside down on a foundation.

    No worries! After your post, I questioned whether or not I took a pic of a bonsai tree. If you zoom in, there are two peoples heads in the lower left corner for reference to the tree’s scale.

    Rainbow colors showing up near/around the sun. A frequent occurrence here in Patagonia.

    Yesterday I failed to take the picture of a full rainbow around the sun. While it is explained as produced when there is ice up there, I have always seen it when there is a consistent (but not thick) layer of high clouds.

    I spent $120 on a huge crush. All for naught.

    Down here we have perfect moon-gazing weather. The eclipse is on its initial stage and it's beginning to look spectacular.

    Clear but -5F. I’ll run out soon for a quick look.

    [update] Very cool. Looks like a cue ball in the sky. Much more 3D looking than usual.
