Spanish Moss AKA Old Man's Beard... To begin with it is, regardless of it's name, neither a moss nor a lichen, but a _bromeliad_ -- a flowering plant. This means that it's in the same family as both pineapples and succulent house plants. In fact "Spanish" moss isn't even from Spain. It's actually native to Central America. It's common name was given by the French explorers after Native Americans told them it was called _Itla-okla_ or 'Tree Hair'. The French, reminded of the Spanish conquistadors' long beard, began to call it Spanish beard. I, along with many others, do find it to resemble an old man's beard. #nature #spanishmoss #bushcraft #naturelove #natureonly #natureporn #bestnatureshot #natureshots #naturephoto #landscapes #planet #earthpix #nakedplanet #nature_lovers #naturesbeauty #natureaddict #wildlifephotography #discoverglobe #ilovenature #earthofficial #bushcrafting
