I’ve been going to Enterprise South Nature Park with my family on a regular basis this winter. It’s a beautiful park with lots of hiking trails. In the winter there is not a great deal of green to see, most of the trees are not pine trees there, at least not along the trails we hike and jog on. In some areas we have observed some beautiful patches of Moss.
The bright green moss really pops against the muted browns and grays of the forest in winter. These images have not had their color saturation boosted, this is how bright the moss is straight out of the camera.
Looking closer you can see some of the shag carpet like texture of this type of moss.
With the 10x Macro filter you can see the detail of the moss, larger than life.
You can click on any of these pictures to see a full size version for more detail.
I don’t know the name of this type of moss. If you are a moss expert and know what it’s called, please leave a comment below.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
