Green lush soft fanned sprouts of moss.
Thanks! There are several different kinds of moss in a close proximity. They are beautiful. I am just a novice citizen observing. And, I am here to learn, too. Thanks for the suggestions, I will follow up. It would tickle me if I could observe them under a microscope. So, i love your slide pictures!
Check out the genus brachythecium or Rhytidiadelphus. Most Mosses are difficult to accurately ID to the species without microscopic feature information. But those genus' should point you in the right direction. Nice observation!
Thanks! I appreciate the guidance.
Dear meloniemeares, Go close to the subject, like in your second photograph. Try to avoid clutters and distractions, e.g. twigs and the pair of small leaves, out of focus strands of moss in the 2nd picture. Plants or flowers don't fly away or move like a butterfly, so take all the time in the world to frame, focus and change angles. Good luck.
