Tree Nymph. Picture
u p d a t e d.
Dryads (Δρυάδες, sing.: Δρυάς) are tree nymphs in Greek mythology. In Greek drys signifies 'oak,' thus dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees, though the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general. Such deities are very much overshadowed by the divine figures defined through poetry and cult. They were normally considered to be very shy creatures, except around the goddess Artemis, who was known to be a friend to most nymphs.

It happened today. Me and =6eternity9 actually bumped into a dryad. Surprisingly enough, she was also her cousin. Just, wow.
