Moss flower

Another encounter with moss:

This moss was growing on wood, at the base of a tree in a boggy wetland. The detail at the tip of the “flower” reminded me of an anemone. A pretty spring afternoon, the frogs were peeping and the red-winged blackbirds were crying out territorial songs.

  1. Mas moss! And the photo’s as pretty as your spring afternoon must have been. I can see the anemone, but my first thought was of a cattail beginning to spread its fluff.

    • I see the cattail resemblance, but I was intent on capturing the detail at the top. As I zoomed in on the LCD to see it magnified, I thought about capturing that view, but it’s too tiny. And I liked the arrangement of OOF tips.

  2. Me too, I like the balance between in focus and not. Very cool shot of a “flower” which, in fact, maybe it is???

      • Hmm, yeah, I’m going to guess spores. Thanks for the reminder. It’s funny (I guess) how much I’ve forgotten.
