    Maire, I had found that photograph but I didn’t think it was particularly illustrative of the height. That’s not a criticism of the image, as I rarely show scale with my photographs, but I was seeking something out specifically for that purpose.

    Ah, that makes sense.
    It sounds very interesting, I must say. I’ll keep an eye out for it this weekend when I’m bush-walking. Thanks for the (as ever) interesting post and beautiful image.

    Come to think of it, I haven’t seen any of these around lately. Used to have them right here in the yahd. Wonder if there has been a reduction in their abundance, or just a reduction in my awareness.
    To show scale Daniel should put up a picture of some pine or camellia leaves. Those often have them.

    I am always amazed how beautiful the moss is up close and personal.
    This shows the fiberouus covering, and some wonderful color !
