These extreme close up photographs show the intricate detail of moss that smothers trees - transforming branches into a thick spongy green layer. A nature photographer has taken close-up photographs of the moss, showing its vast differences in pattern, colour and texture.
Their tiny, simple leaves appear in different shapes and sizes and some are even a rustic, golden brown colour. One shot is of a 100-metre tall Sitka spruce tree in the Hoh Rainforest, Washington, US, which can be seen fully coated with the moss. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
Pictured: Moss growing on a tree, not the 100-metre tall Sitka spruce tree pictured in other shots.
