    Beautiful! I like that overturned leaf, and of course the lichen.

    • I was especially fascinated by the thorns on the bottom of that blackberry leaf. The light green is so delicate, but like a rose it carries hazardous defenses if you don’t observe it carefully.
      I totally thought of you when I saw that enormous beard of lichen out in the Middle Fork area. I was somewhat enthralled with it and worked very hard to at least catch the image of the water droplets shining all through it in the sun. It was breathtakingly beautiful. One of the most wondrous sights I can remember. I ached for a better camera than my phone in that moment, but at least it came through well enough to share.

        🙂 Thank you for thinking of me! There are trees like the one hung with lichens (Usnea I think) that I’ve passed over and over gain in c certain spots, but they are always really hard to photograph – the background is usually too busy and the light isn’t right, etc. I think your photos came out really well, especially considering they were made with a phone – but I’ve gotten some good photos with a phone too (and not a high end one). You never know. If you have time, read up on Usnea lichens – they’re fascinating. And check out this man’s Flickr site – he does amazing work with lichens, mosses, etc.

        If the link doesn’t work search Flickr for Richard Droker

        • Ooo! Thanks for the recommendations. It wasn’t so much that I disliked the image I caught, it was just that I knew the incredibly ones I was missing out on due to a more limited tool. Glad I prioritized best camera available with my phone choice last time I did an upgrade. Have been very tempted to upgrade again for that improvement. But limitations can bring about creative solutions too. Trying to stay with the practical for now.
