Too out of focus.....
Is it wet or dry?
If wet, looking like foamy spit, spittle bugs.

Eriococcus Azalea--Cottony bark scale.
Too hard to really tell from those out of focus pictures.

yeah, my cell phone takes crappy pics, its kinda grayish white, almost like peeling skin from a sunburn, it varies in size, growing on the bark, its dry to the touch (unless its raining) kinda rippeled around the edges. I will try for better pics with my dig cam tomorrow if it rains. I use to see it alot in Florida on trees but not on shrubs.
