Came across this bush that was covered in Lichen. I thought the bush was dead but there were quite a few live buds on it.

Stunning shot Alan. Never seen anything like it. Well spotted.GrinGrin
Like the effect the macro has produced Alan; lichen has interesting shapes when shot in this way, like tiny cups!
