Can you guess what this is?

What is it?  It's one of the things I miss about my hometown.  Live oak trees dripping in dreamy spanish moss. Actually here it's just a branch.  Growing up I heard my grandmother complain all the time about spanish moss smothering her trees. Sometimes it does cover the tree so completely the branches and leaves are barely visible.  But it is so very beautiful.  A little mysterious and a bit spooky at times. I like to think of it as heavenly though.....
