There are some things in nature and in the wider world that are disturbing. Humankind has definitely produced plenty of ideas and goods that have creeped out many. However, one element that is not usually thought of in this context is arboreal life.

The second one looks like some old, B rated horror movie! Almost looks like an alien or a swamp monster.

Years ago an old freind took us to this ancient apple orchard at night.
Rows and rows of dead apple trees.
Very creepy place.

I wish i could remember where that place was.
Actually this guy knew of several cool places that i have no idea where they were at that i’d like to check out again.

Too obvious. You split the picture and reversed it and overlaid it on the center.

Easy trick - even an amateur can figure this one out.

It came from the same source as the other pics on this thread so don’t blame me for the fakery.
