Liking lichen..

By Fred263
Thank you for your clicks, comments & votes to my previous image for which I'm most appreciative & your good wishes for my recovery. I was amazed by the response and would like to thank all for their continued support. I would especially like to thank the following for their treasured UAs: Dave(Mistere), Lynne(LynneJoyce), Ju(JuBarney), Lillian, Dave(DaveNewbury), & Isabel(Chinga).

I hope you may like images of the Lichen which had formed around a small twig & had fallen on the ground in my local park in N. London. I thought it was worth bringing the 10 cm twig home to photograph as the lichen had lovely colours & shapes. The Version gives a wider view.
Lichens are compound plants as algae and fungi that live together in close association, as a result of which both are benefited.

Thanks for looking & have a great day. This will be my last upload as I will be on holiday for 2 weeks but will stay in touch whenever I can get online in Crete.Smile
