[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Juniper Haircap Moss (Polytrichum juniperinum). The field manual called these 'flowers' "short reddish bristle-points". They occur on the ends of some moss stems, but not all, and apparently have nothing to do with reproduction, since these mosses also get sporophytes. I just liked the abstract shapes and the fractal geometry.

Hi Shelley,

This is so pretty. I have never seen this Moss before and agree with you about the marvelous shapes. The moss and the leaves are beautiful.


Hi Shelley.

Beautifull image .
Good capture.

Hi Shelley,
This is a great capture of this particular flower!
I like the composition made here, with the use of the DOF and all that blurred plants surrounding the subject.
The only nit would be the slight noise visible at the background.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Shelly,
It is indeed a study in geometry. Beautiful subtle colors and tones. Nice detail. Looks great!
