That feathery beauty is Resurrection Fern. I have lots of it on my place. It grows atop long live oak limbs and has a unique survival tactic. During droughts, this fern will curl into brown, dried up, seemingly dead shadows of it's former self. It will stay this way until the rains come. After a good soaking, the leaves regain their healthy green appearance and get back to the business of living.
Sometimes, what seems like an end...is not.
