LICHEN


I liked the way this Lichen was attached to an old wooden fence post. the florescent green against the greyed wood makes an interesting contrast.
Remember to enlarge the picture to see the detail.

I guess this must be the kind reindeer and other animals eat. I have not seen it here where I live. I have seen the kind that is flat and looks almost like a scaly moss and mine grows on old stones and monuments like my old Japanese lantern. My lantern is now starting to look like those found in Japanese graveyards.

Yours is a nice photograph with plenty of color and details.

:) The contrast of the plant against the wood and the incredible hue! Great shot.

I agree with you about the colour contrast. The vivid shade of green against the weathered, gray boards is fantastic. An aside: if you hear anything about or from Faye, let me know. I'm getting a little anxious to hear.

Was the lichen up in Washinton State, where it is more moist, the lichen grows better.
