Clumps of Spirogyra, a filamentous green algae, growing in a ditch. This luxuriant growth of algae is usually associated with water enrichment from some source: agricultural run off, or as in this case, cattle manure from the animals grazing the marshes close-by. Spirogyra is commonly known as water silk or mermaid's tresses.
