On a walk in the country this time of year it is often worth a much closer look at nature. while it is a bit wet to get on your hands and knees to take in the environment a look in the trees paid off with some nice Lichens . Near by wooden fencing also had more colourful ones.
Lichen’s are known as a composite organism that arises from algae or cyanobacteria living among filaments of multiple fungi in a symbiotic relationship. Lichen’s have properties different from those of its component organisms. They come in many colours, sizes, and forms.
Reed beds along my walk also gave some interesting picture opportunities.
