Rorschach test

I showed a photograph of a line of Sycamore trees in late afternoon sunlight the other day.  Today on my walk, it was overcast, so the colors of the trees are more accurate.  This design caught my eye, and I decided to do a closeup of this part of one trunk.  My sense is that the Sycamore tree bark is usually brown, so seeing all this green was a surprise.  Perhaps this is due to seasonal changes.  And then I realized that this looks like a Rorschach test, except those are symmetrical.
