Hanging Hair Lichen on a Fruit Tree
This fruit tree in the Ruckle Heritage Farm orchards is covered with what may be Common Witch's Hair (Alectoria sarmentosa), often referred to as "Old Man's beard". Frequently and erroneously referred to as moss, these species are actually a lichen. Photographed in Ruckle Provincial Park on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada.
