Photographer's Note

The worlds largest parasitic plant, this one is ten meters tall, it grows throughout Southern Western Australia and flowers around Christmas time, hence the name. Like Mistletoe it needs a host to survive.
A word of warning, because they flower in our summer (look at the grass ) Christmas trees are one of the few sources of pollen and nectar at that time and are inhabited by a myriad of bees, wasps and other stinging insects. hand held telephoto pov about 25 meters .Cropped and sharpened in Corel p.p.
