The Strangler Fig is quite an interesting type of tree... The seed is deposited at the top of another tree, often by birds living in the canopy. This gives the fledgling Strangler Fig a competitive advantage in the jungle, as light is a limiting resource on the ground. It lives the first part of it’s life as a hemiepiphyte- a type of plant that lives on another plant and derives it’s water and nutrients from the air and rain. As the tree grows, it’s roots plunge downward enveloping the host tree and anything else that gets in the way. In this case, the Eastern outer gopura of Ta Som Temple in Cambodia. #stranglerfig #fic#ficus #cambodia #tasom #angkor #khmer #jungle #temple #travel #explore #mothernature #bio#biologynerd #motherearth #adapt #tree #ficus #growwhereyoureplanted #seetheworld #enjoynature #wanderlust #vacation #globetrotter #biology

Abandoned for 500 years, nature takes over. Feels like stepping into the Monkey Temple 🐒 in The Jungle Book. #taprohm #angkor #temple #jungle #ruins #siemreap #junglebook #travel #siemreapnet #cambodia

First on our to-do list in Cambodia was seeing Angkor Wat. This has been our bucket list for a long time and totally lived up to the hype! Anyone who has been to this ancient temple for sunrise knows it can be a full contact sport, but we tuned out the crowds and snapped some photos before exploring the temple itself. We checked out a ton of the other temples in the Angkor Complex over the next few days and the experience totally wowed us! Stay tuned for more shots from Cambodia #whereveryouland

ANGKOR TEMPLES, Day 3/ Bakong, Roluos . Had a thoroughly enjoyable (and bloody knackering) week exploring the ruins of Angkor with this little explorer/Lara Croft wannabe. #alltempledout #notempleswillcomparenow . . #🇰🇭 #cambodia #angkor #roluos #temple #ancient #ruins #wideangle #fisheye #tomtombandit #travelphotography

Study in water lilies at Angkor Wat, Cambodia. Just as beautiful as the temples, but in a different way. Same same, but different. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #globetrotter #tra#travel #traveldeeper #exploremore #adventuretravel #getoutdoors #travelphotography #travel #wanderlust #instatravel #igtravel #goexplore #earthpix #cambodia #angkor #angkorwat #siemreap #naturephotography #waterlilies
