Tree Growing On A Tree

From one of my new favorite websites, comes this extraordinary piece of fauna.  Yes, that is in fact a tree, growing on top of another tree.

Trees growing on or in other trees is not in itself all that abnormal.  But when, for example, a fruit tree grows upon a willow tree in such an extraordinary fashion as above, is is quite… rare.  As in probably the only one in the world.

As it turns out, both trees seem to be healthy.  The upper tree actually flowers in the spring.
