Tight and complicated

Lichen, Emmon’s Preserve, Kennebunkport Maine

As I mentioned a few posts ago, we have a lot of limbs, and whole trees, down in our forests…evidence of the power of the series of nor-easters we had in March. They brought with them some residents of the higher elevations of the wood, like this mat of lichen encasing a fallen limb. I am pretty sure there are at least 2 species in this mat, maybe more. I find the complexity of the design fascinating…and far from random. Sony RX10iv at 24mm. In-camera HDR. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos.
