Default Moss

While my better half was shopping in a store that held no interest to me, I took a few quick snaps in between the rain squalls.

Oh, I really like that second shot of the moss. It almost looks like an underwater sea creature.

Thanks for sharing.

Beep Beep,
Darby

I agree with Darby on the second one.

I tend to look closely at all the moss, lichen, and things of that ilk growing around here, but I don't think I've ever seen anything like what's in your photos. Is it growing on trees and shrubs?

Yes, both trees and shrubbery... it's pretty common on this coast.

Ha! When I saw Barb's question, I started to blurt out, "it reminds me of Oregon," and then I looked at where ohenry is from. No wonder!

(I was born in Portland, lived there till I was 17, also graduated from UO in 1975). My family still all live in the Portland area.

TAFNPR (this added for no particular reason):
I first read Lord of the Rings when I was 15-16, and it was easy to imagine the story happening in places like Oregon's coastal rain forrests and quiet glens and gorges along the Columbia River; they all have a kind of grayish, melancholy atmosphere with the lichens and Spanish moss hanging down.

Norm, these pics were taken in Carlton, Oregon (about 30 miles SE of Portland off Hwy 99). I was killing time in the rain waiting for my better half to peruse a shop that held no interest to me

It's better to stand in the rain than it is to go shopping, but put a camera in one's hands, and life borders on perfect.

I have a photo of the weirdest orange thing growing on a tree branch. I'll have to find that picture and post it in hopes that someone here will be able to assure me it isn't a new type of triffid.

Have you seen Adaptation? Maybe an orchid?

Not a good photo, but good enough to show The Thing:

Uh, Barb, that isn't an underwater shot, is it?

. . . Really, tho, looks like something out of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
