Same place

A few days later, Gracie and I decided to head back to the piney woods again on the grasslands with a few other two legged nature enthusiasts.

Gracie said “Me too, I want to go please!”

Once again, I was on the look out for crustose and stubble lichens on the pines. This is a crustose lichen.

What was this blob?

A closer look revealed that it is was a shelf fungus. It was weirdly shredded. Here you can see that it was gilled.

There are at least three crustose lichens and a tiny foliose lichen here.

We had reached a pond. On the far side, I imagine the horse people stop for a refreshing drink on the trail.

Gracie finds ponds refreshing as well!

Rushes were at the edge.

One more crustose lichen!

Examining a plant or a moss or a lichen! It was a fun day even though I did not find a stubble lichen. Maybe next time, eh!

  1. Fun article about yellowthroats. Havent seen any in town but had lots in the country. Sad about the antarctic. Nice pond for Gracie.
