Mistletoe plant (Visicum album abietis) in a Scot's pine tree (Pinus syvestris). Mistletoe is a partial parasite, it bears evergreen leaves that carry out some photosynthesis of their own, while it relies on the host plant mainly for mineral nutrients from the ground. Photographed in the south of France, in autumn.
