Squeezed To Meet You!

Okay, I think we can see these are not your average, lazily-smothering-the-old-tree-type vines; these are some strangulatin' vegetable-constrictors that mean business. Having gotten hold of a strong young sapling, they are Taking. It. Down yessirree.
You'll understand why I made sure to keep moving, and not stand for too long in one spot, when I walked around the Knollwood ruins in Muttontown Preserve with my brother yesterday. The English ivy was so vigorous, so extensive... I swear it was grabbing my shoelaces...

I have seen a lot of ivy ... even fallen trees laden with the stuff - but I don't think I've ever seen a vine this big. It looks like an anaconda!!! I'm so glad you left quickly - I would hate to think of you tangled up in that grip!!!
