A little perspective...


This first shot is not so good, but just wanted you to see this lichen in perspective...it was on the top of these posts. They were about 30 inches high...give or take an inch or two. Roger noticed it...not me.


I have never seen it with the red. If you will click the above picture to enlarge it, you will notice that the red is like a pod containing the lichen. At least I call this lichen. If you know different, please be sure to say so.

Isn't it beautiful!

I've never seen anything like this that is so red. Fine close up. The enlargement is needed to fully appreciate this fine shot.
