Taxidermy on trees?

Meg's Tree

I decided to take this picture after sitting out in the sun on the patio one day recently. I was looking up at the sky, and realized the sky was so clear, and the tree so beautiful, that it almost looked fake to me, as though it had been artificially preserved.  This shot is looking almost straight up, from the exact angle I could see it while laying out and enjoying the California sun. So beautiful.
