Runes and Rounds

Seen at Crescent Beach:

Lichen circle. 

Several of the rocks had these, from about the size of a loonie to a hand-width. If you look closely at the full-size photo, you'll find individual cups as well, just starting out. I'm always amazed at these seemingly fragile things that eat away hard rock.

The yellow spots are another cup lichen.

Beetle tunnels on the inside of a piece of bark. They remind me of Nordic runes.

  1. I think of it as beetle calligraphy.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
