  1. I like seeing pictures if lichen. I've only ever seen it in pictures. I'm never really sure where to look for it, so I've never been able to find any except in pictures. That makes lichen a bit of a fun mystery for me.

  8. There was a time when I used to click only Macros and then I lost my Macro lens. These are some lovely shots.

  9. Thing that I love about macro is that even the most commonplace can be beautiful when viewed up close. Good example, Gunilla.

  13. Jälleen upeat kuvat. Olen itsekin kuvaillut jäkäliä macrolla ja niistä saa ihan jännitäviä kuvia =).

  16. Pretty lichen! It's a good thing when it grows on trees, the sign of a healthy forest. So I guess these must be healthy fence posts )))
