An amazing tree. I would never have guessed mistletoe, which I thought was a small bush.

It IS a small bush. There are quite a lot of small bushes scattered about in that poor tree. Birds eat the small white berries which have very sticky pips. They wipe their beaks on a branch to get shut of the irritating pip and it germinates resulting in yet another parasitic growth on the tree -- or one nearby.

Nice point of view at the end of the line of trees. The composition works very well.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Many thanks for both of the comments.

I was going to add a note about mistletoe but you've done it for me David - many thanks.

Thanks again
Peter
