Very unusual. I've never seen anything like that around here where we live. It is rather pretty though isn't it?

It really is miniature. Nature is so wonderful. Since blogging, I have been looking around me, even the grass around me are not spared from my camera...hehehe. Have a nice day, Tom.

These are plentful around here, I found these in a local quarry. Old disused quarries seem to have their own little eco-system... I'll show a few more tomorrow.

Interesting shots, Tom. I also enjoyed the series on Three Stags Head Pub.

I guess I have never seen this type of lichen or if I did I wasn't paying any attention. Thanks for showing me this close up.

Nice macros, Tom! You have a better eyesight than I have - I can't remember seeing lichen like this.

What great macros Tom! The lichens are so easy to overlook but they are so intriguing. Nice post and photos.
Have a great week and smiles.
