Hello friends in TN.

I found this little mistletoe flowers on the mangrove plant. It is different than what I am familiar with in the mainland.

Mistletoe is the common name for a group of hemi-parasitic plants in the order Santalales that grow attached to and within the branches of a tree or shrub. Parasitism has evolved only nine times in the plant kingdom; of those, the parasitic mistletoe habit has evolved independently five times: Misodendraceae, Loranthaceae, and Santalaceae, including the former separate families Eremolepidaceae and Viscaceae. Although Viscaceae and Eremolepidaceae were placed in a broadly-defined Santalaceae by Angiosperm Phylogeny Group II, DNA data indicates that they evolved independently.

Thanks for viewing!

Salam Jusni,
excellent detal of this mistletoe.The hairy petals are well presented in excellent view.
I like the dramatic effect of this shallow depth.
f3.5 produces a very exciting effect.


Hello Jusni!
Nice shot. Good exposure and capture. Perfect contrast and sharpness. Superb lightness and colours. Perfect take and note.
Well done!

In some parts of the world the frost, which was spreading with haste, had threatened to capture anything that made even the slightest of sounds, but here in this image a new life enjoying a comfortable welcoming of the warm sunshine. Bravo Jusni, great result from the baby PowerShot G7. Incredible clarity and fine colors. The Marsh Mistletoe no matter how parasitic is a beautiful plant.
