I made this photo in an area that's about 1/2 mile from me. As you see, it is filled with trees laden with Spanish Moss. Probably no other plant more closely epitomizes the Deep South than Spanish moss. Despite its common familiarity, Spanish Moss suffers from an "identity crisis". Largely misunderstood, it is neither "Spanish" or Moss". It is an air plant, of the family of Bromeliaceae or bromeliad, and is closely related to orchids and, oddly enough, pineapples.

Thank you for the information, it was interesting. I didn't know anything about Spanish Moss as I live in Utah and we don't have anything like that here. Liked your picture....Naoma
