Lichen on rock

These bull's-eye lichens on rock often look as hard and gritty as the rock itself.

Placopsis gelida. The lichen has no underside: it's attached firmly to the rock, right out to the edges.

Little River wetland, Comox.

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!
