A beautiful life-form that doesn’t quiet fit the fungi world or the plant world…lichens are an amazingly beautiful and diverse, not to mention colorful and textural, part of our world.
Often found with fungi and algae….I have tried to capture a few images into a calendar to show just some of the species that live in my area of the world…NE Kansas, USA.
They grow on wood, on the ground, on metal and even glass…there’s been stories (and maybe proof?) of some found in pure water.
Many might recognise some from their own locations or see likenesses to those they have found on their own….
Hopefully you can enjoy the beautiful world of what I’ve seen.
