Description:

No close up I'm afraid as this was 70-80 feet up in a tree, I still haven't found a piece low enough for a macro shot.
I read somewhere that Mistletoe is becoming scarce, well thankfully here with the leaves now off most of the trees I've noticed that it seems to be growing in some abundance.

Mistletoe

As a matter of interest whilst walking the dog from my home in the first mile I've counted over 60 separate balls of Mistletoe. All of it is at the top of tall trees and totally unpickable, thankfully.
