    I also find these antennas quite interesting, but I only noticed them when my dad pointed them out.

    Nice. You should add that to the flickr group “Cell towers being passed off as trees” (http://www.flickr.com/groups/345995@N24/).

    We have those in Canada too. They look a bit funny though because they’re a few feet taller than the rest of the forest.

    There’s one of those between Lisbon and Aveiras, if I am not mistaken (North of Lisbon). I find them so weird and funny! Just think of thiose men building an antenna like one of those plastic Christmas’ trees!

    We have one in California that stands all alone on the top of a hill and thus, fools no one.
