More lichen

This group is on a post at the docks. It seems that salt spray doesn't slow it down.

An appressed leaf lichen, and maybe a rag.

I find it very difficult to distinguish between the shrub lichens, the rags, the bones, and the beards. They are all pale green to whitish, shrubby lichens, growing on trees, logs and rocks. In this one, if I look closely, the various branches are wide, textured, rather than round and twiggish.

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!
