I love the patterns you find in lichen. I just saw an exhibition last week of lichen photogrpahs

Mo - that's interesting. Where was the lichen exhibition?

Lichens, endlessly fascinating. Have you Macro mode on your camera - is so you can have hours of fun shooting lichens of differing types.

Hello Toffee Apple. Yes, have micro. Have stack of lichen photos too - but no tripod so some are muzzy. Have been wondering whether to do a lichen post for Loose and Leafy.

Thanks Tsuki. I like the colours of lichen. I like the way some change colour according to the weather too.
