This is a very fine white thread which was observed on some small fallen branches / twigs on a very frosty morning. It looked and behaved like ice (melting with the heat of my finger) but looks like no ice I have seen before. Could it be a fungus fillament which freezes and turn to water, and the gel like fillament? Very little frost was seen on other leaves or branches.
