half my photos of florida contain spanish moss. i suppose it is a nuisance for you but i love the look of it, particularly when the sun combs through it.

Halcyon said...

Wow! That's some hairy tree!!! Hope it doesn't blow away. :)

Judy said...

That can't be good for the tree. But it looks nice for a picture.

HoHoHoHoHo!

I love spanish moss and was relieved to learn that it does not kill the tree on which it grows.

Because of the type of weather we have I very rarely see a tree covered in that much Spanish Moss. I agree with Andy it has always intrigued me. This is really amazing to me in such a developed setting.

You see, it doesn't need a Christmas decoration. The garland is already there!

Sharon said...

Holy smokes....is that all Spanish moss?

hamilton said...

I am not sure what to make of it - it is beautiful in its ugliness.

Linda said...

Hairy indeed! Great capture, Lowell!

Kay said...

Quite a sight! This looks like something that should take a walk into "Lord of the Rings." Or, maybe that's where it came from. . .decided to stop wandering and put down roots. . .

That's a lot of Spanish moss on one little tree. I think it's an interesting phenomena for a Northerner, but I don't think I'd like to have it on any of my trees. Some Southerners consider it a nuisance. But, it's almost an icon of the South.

It looks like it's covered in giant spider webs. Or a massive amount of dust bunnies. I've never seen that much moss on a single tree. Very hairy indeed!

Weird

RedPat said...

I've never seen a tree with so much moss on it!

Randy said...

The tree needs a shave.

Jack said...

Wow. That looks like an awfully young tree to be so full of Spanish moss.

JM said...

Fantastic! I think I've never seen a tree so 'hairy'!

Reminds me of some of the fences and bushes here on the Great Orme, where goats or sheep have brushed past and left pieces of wool stuck there!

EG CameraGirl said...

Very cool, Lowell!

Bibi said...

Looks like it was standing in the way of a lot of people who were brushing their long-haired dogs! ;<)

I must call the hair dresser today.

Karl Demetz said...

Wow, never seen such a tree!
Is it cognate with Santa Claus?

Time for a tree haircut. Nice shot!
