Lichen 2008-03-04 - Common orange lichen
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/160 - 250s, f8
-------------------------------------------
This quite beautiful lichen, Xanthoria parietina, is very common in coastal areas. It ranges in colour from green through yellow to orange. It can be found growing on bark, stones and rocks. These were all found on small trees close to where I live.

Moss 2008-03-04 - Three kinds of moss
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: Yes, diffused (last two only)
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
Moss is interesting. You can find it practically everywhere and from a distance they al look the same. But a closer look reveals amazing things. They are not alike and they have different kinds of capsules. Here are three different mosses.

Lichen 2008-02-29 - Pyxie Cups
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
I have photographed these Pyxie Cups (Cladonia pyxidata) once before. Then using the Raynox 250. This time I used the Raynox 150 as I was trying it out. They had grown since last time, and both in number and in size. It was hard to choose what to photograph.

Moss 2008-02-29 - Rose Moss
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
This is a beautiful moss; Rose Moss, Rhodobryum roseum. From a distance it looks just like a very dark green spot, but up close you see the beauty. It is also surprisingly smooth, almost like velvet. It had a few capsules, all brownish.

Moss 2008-02-29 - Carpet Moss
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
The Carpet Moss, Mnium hornum is quite common and as many of our mosses it grows in the shade in parks and forests. There was quite a lot of capsules and all of them were fresh green. Not dry and brown like on other mosses this time of year.

Lichen 2008-02-06 - Parmelia physodes
Lens: Raynox DCR-250
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
This lichen I found growing on a small apple tree at work. The weather was for once quite good (and my boss was busy!) so I got my camera and took some photos. This is one of our most common lichens, and being quite flat it is fairly easy to get good focus.

Lichen 2008-02-06 - Ramalina frazinea
Lens: Raynox DCR-250
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
I found this interesting looking lichen growng on the bark of an oak tree at my work. I took several photos, but it was quite difficult to get a good depth of focus even though I was using aperture 8. Still, I think a few of them turned out quite good.

Lichen 2008-02-04 - Pyxie Cup
Lens: Raynox DCR-250
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
I found this quite large amount of Pyxie Cups Cladonia pyxidata at the base of a Larch. They were of all kinds of sizes and I got quite busy. It wasn't all that easy to find good angles and get focus. Still, I was quite surprised by the outcome.

Lichen 2008-02-03 - Lichens
Lens: Raynox DCR-250
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: M mode, ISO 100, 1/100s, f8
-------------------------------------------
I found at least three different kinds of lichens today. One greyish, one yellowish and one green. All three were found on growing on trees. Unfortunately I got good photos of the last two only. The last one I have taken photos of before. The Pyxie Cup, Cladonia pyxidata

Lichen 2008-01-27 - Lichen: Pyxie Cup
Lens: Raynox DCR-250
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: M mode, ISO 100, 1/200s, f8
-------------------------------------------
Right beside a path I found some interesting lichen. The first three were growing on the ground and the rest were found growing on an old stump. At first I thought it was two different kinds of lichen, but it turned out to be one and the same species: Pyxie Cup, Cladonia pyxidata.

Moss 2008-01-27 - Moss: Two species
Lens: Raynox DCR-250
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: M mode, ISO 100, 1/200s, f8 - Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
Moss is quite difficult to get good photos of. Today I managed to get at least a few. This moss was found beside the same path as the lichen, but not at the same spot. I had some help from the sun and I could a little bit of warmth too.
