Natural Pictograph

I was walking along the Bog Trail in the Arboretum when I spotted an old, fallen tree by the side of the path. I was intrigued by the worm trails in the wood and bark, which reminded me of oriental characters or pictograph. In order to emphasize this impression, I composed the shot to exclude any background, and combined using a long lens (to flatten the image) and a large depth of field (to keep everything in the image sharp) to get the photo seen here.
