Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Mistletoe, Kiss (of Death?)

Mistletoe attaches itself to it's host tree, eventually killing the host.  It is a poisonous plant that causes acute gastrointestinal problems including stomach pain, and diarrhea along with low pulse.

And, we kiss under it during the Christmas season, and yes Man claimed a kiss.

* You can read lots more facts and information on mistletoe here at Wikipedia.
