    This was the spruce tree I camped under last weekend. Kind of creepy looking, don't you think?

    Do you think something might have fallen out of this fluff, karissa?

    I really like how the light you had for this photo makes the "fluff" shine.
    Somehow the tree looks like he's not dealing well with all this "fluff" though... is it a disease? Our very own digital_flower_pictures might know the answer!?!?!

    I first thought it might have been spiders...there has been an explosion in the spider population this year...lots of webs everywhere.

    Actually it's poplar fluff. This tree was on the edge of a grove of poplar trees and the fluff that they shed was thick in the air. At times, it looked like it was snowing. This unlucky tree was completely covered in it...all 60 feet of it.
