Lichen Loveliness

There is something so intriguing about lichens.  I have always enjoyed observing and studying it.  Once I even slipped on a rock ledge and broke my elbow trying to pick samples for my science lesson. 

Fortunately, these specimens were in the back yard and no mishaps were involved in the taking of these pictures.

Try looking at everything a little closer, snap the shot and join us at Studio Waterstone.

Here's to Macro Sunday!


  1. Glad to hear that no one was harmed taking these shots. Our family trips to Colorado were always filled with bits and pieces of this stuff too....all the colors and textures are so amazing.

  2. Oh I agree!! Lichen, beautiful green moss by the riverbank and fantastic fungi/mushrooms! They are all wonderful!!

  3. I don't think I've ever met a lichen I didn't want to photograph… Lovely photos!


Love to hear from my readers! So join in the fun.
