This essence was an unexpected bonus – he just begged for an essence to be made! I walked under this enormous tree, wishing I had a telephoto lens in order to capture the full effect of this gigantic tree.  I asked Bas, one of the gardeners, to stand under it  to give an idea of scale.  Though gigantic with enormous teeth, this tree’s energy was gentle and protective.
