Looks pretty does it not? Wiki says, Loranthus (ithil kanni in Malayalam), “is a genus of parasitic plants that grow on the branches of woody trees. It belongs to the family Loranthaceae, the showy mistletoe family.” It goes on to say, “Some species of Loranthus, in the broad sense, are troublesome parasites, for example they occur in Kerala, India as a menace on mango trees (Mangifera indica)” Guess what, that is exactly where I found this one, growing on my neighbor’s mango tree!

The pebble strewn dirt track leading to the beach at Paravur. Picture taken from the beach. The small strip of darker blue you see beyond is the backwaters.
This is the part of the track running parallel to the beach that we covered to reach there.
