photoblog image Dry Cladonia

Dry Cladonia

Cladonia asahinae is commonly known as pixie cup lichen. This set growing on a piece of driftwood was so dry I had been thinking of watering it.

 

Our drought is finally over as of two weeks ago, and we are now recieving regular rain showers. Too little, too late for some crops but finally some relief!

An amazing macro, Mary!
So glad you've gotten some rain... we've had a fairly good Monsoon.
Mary MacADNski: TodaY was 29 and humid but tomorrow some wonderful rain, if it materializes.

Like a set of trumpets for pixies.
Mary MacADNski: Sometimes they are found amongst British soldiers.
Lovely peep at a miniworld Mary. Pleased the drought is over
Mary MacADNski: The drought was official for the first time ever. It is a worrying trend.
so pleasing, Mary... much to see here
Mary MacADNski: I should look to see if there is any colour there now that we have had rain.
This is a very good close-up Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It turned out okay after a strange positioning on my part.
Nice, Mary, I like Andrews description!
Mary MacADNski: Cups or trumpets, all good for pixies.
A fine shot, with such nicely selected focus...
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Larry. My set up allows only a small area of focus.
A fine image, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Tom.
