Two photo sessions experimenting with different background. My camera is just 2MP model but for the beginning it is OK.

The photo below shows the present top of the ficus. I try to remodel the ugly scar. The scar was there when I bought it as a typical Ginseng tree, not a real bonsai tree.
By hollowing the top I expect slowly the tree will fill in the space with nicer covering. When the new leader grows more this will be hidden and probably disappear.
