SITS Summer Photography Challenge Day 3 - Macro

We recently took a little excursion up to a Rhododendron Festival in Mentone, AL.  On the way back, we stopped near Little River Canyon and took a mini-hike out to Indian Falls.  

On the way, we spotted trees that were filled with these foamy patches.  I'm not sure what they are, possibly some kind of bug eggs, but we had to get a picture.  I snapped this with my Samsung Galaxy S3 in macro format.

As you can see, I forgot to remove the Macro setting for the next photo, thus the slight blur.
But you can see the foam in it's entirety.  If you know what this is, please share in the comment section.  I would love to know!  Like, I said, this stuff was everywhere.  Maybe these trees produce it?  Some sort of flying insect?  

I'll be out of town the next 4 days and a little bummed that I won't be able to keep up with the challenge, but hopefully I'll get some more great pictures while I'm away.  The tips and techniques have been invaluable, from the challenge sponsors and bloggers.  Thank you!
