wild-cotton

Myrull (cotton grass) is better known as ‘bog cotton’ in Norway.  These little fellas grow in acidic bogs in Arctic tundra regions – areas where the ground never fully defrosts from the Winter.  I wasn’t aware I was standing in an acidic bog at the time I was taking this picture.  If I had of known beforehand I don’t think I would have rushed in so quick.  But now when I think about it… it wasn’t so bad.
