This is a stunning capture, you can almost feel the cold coming out of the screen.

Well because most of us have had to look it up I thought it might help the next person to know the following
Ents are a fictional race of humanoid trees from J. R. R. Tolkien 's fantasy world of Middle-earth. They appear to have been inspired by the talking trees of many of the world's folklores (see tree (mythology) for more information). At the time The Lord of the Rings takes place, there are no young ents (known as entings) because the entwives (female ents) were lost
Anyway a lovely ent John
