Ents are a fictional race of beings in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy world of Middle-Earth who closely resemble trees. They are similar to the talking trees in folklore around the world and probably the most ubiquitous of all creatures in fantasy and folklore, perhaps second only to dragons. Ents exhibit wide variation in personal traits (height, heft, coloring, even the number of digits), as they came to resemble somewhat the specific types of trees that they shepherded. As I walked around the rim of the grand canyon coming upon this tree, I could not help thinking that it was going to start talking to me.......and then it did.....that's why I took its picture....lol.
