  1. Spectacular pictures! Love the vivid color and the details. I have a whole new admiration for lichens, thanks to you!

    • They’re so intimate, in their way. I feel like I’m being handed tiny, magical bouquets full of secrets when I get to come in close and see the wonderfully tiny flora in their strongholds on stone and concrete and brick and branch. I’m glad you enjoyed these ones, too. 🙂
