This cactus makes phone calls

Somewhere in this picture, there's a cell phone tower. See if you can guess where.

Since 2003, a German photographer named Robert Voit has been traveling the world searching for suspicious trees. Hidden in plain sight in urban areas are cell phone towers that have been dressed up with bark and branches to fool unsuspecting residents and passers-by, in some cases successfully, and in some cases not.

Some of the fake trees are prevalent enough that they've been unofficially designated as new species, as with the pseudpinus telephoneyensis pine tree pole disguise. I don't speak Latin, but if I did, my guess would be that the name means "fake pine telephone" or something.

For more pseudotrees, check out our gallery below, and head over to the artist's website for even more pics.
