Guardian Angel of a Tree
This angel is protecting the spirit and responsibilities of an ancient Grandmother maple. The tree is one of a series of maples that have stood for hundreds of years in a venerable New England family’s front yard. It’s time has finally come, and the angels have positioned themselves to protect the tree during transition.
Each of us has our own angel and grandmother’s is now visibly present – seen only because of the deterioration of the wood around her. She has emerged from the wood itself.
This small angel is a warm living wood nature-carving in an otherwise dying grey field of wood. She has emerged from the wood itself – there is no differentiation line.
I have admired this tree since my youth, passing it on drives from our family’s summer home into town. It is the female half of a duo who have for generations of human occupancy stood staunch and responsible outside the home of one of the area’s elite pioneering families.

Atala Dorothy Toy is an award-winning photographer who focuses on portrait studies of sentient nature. Whether this is a magnolia expressing itself by bringing forth an exquisite blossom – or a wood elf marking his territory – Atala’s photos pulsate with universal life force energy.
Raised and educated in the Quaker faith, Atala considers herself part of the long lineage of Quaker Mystics who see all creation as varied expressions of one Unity. As an interdimensional communicator, she is accomplished in moving between different realms of beings, each filled with its own form of sentient life.
With a personal library of tens of thousands of her own nature spirit photographs, Atala is now working on comprehensively cataloguing the various type of beings who regularly use trees and rocks as their personal canvases. The material on this website is part of her work. Atala has authored three definitive books on this topic – available, signed by her, on this website. We are Not Alone: A Guidebook to Interdimensional Cooperation explores the soft science of interdimensional cooperation. Nature Spirits, Spirit Guides and Ghosts: How to Talk With and Photograph Beings of Other Realms offers insight into the complex realms that co-exist with us on earth. Truths the Nature Beings Have Shown Me is a collection of over 120 of her photographs of nature spirits.
