On an alien world, the semi-sentient vegetation whispers at you and wriggles its sprout tentacles. A hedge on this world really does offer protection. I am not referring to hedge funds, which are also alien. There are animals and people on this world, too, all of them derived from this vegetable evolution. I'm not sure this place is safe to visit, unless you are a purely mechanical robot, and maybe not even then. The atmosphere is loaded with carbon dioxide and chlorine, exhalations and inhalations of this non-Earthly vegetation. Hedge your bets if you explore this place. This picture was not done on-site.
