Mistletoe on a bare tree

Even when a deciduous tree has shed all of its own leaves for the winter, it may still bear the ones put out by the hemi-parasite called mistletoe. I photographed our local species, Phoradendron tomentosum ssp. tomentosum, near the intersection of Drusilla’s Drive and Wells Branch Parkway in Pflugerville on January 20th.
