Lichens (close -up shots)
« on: May 17, 2020, 19:06:35 »
Went back today after the total lockdown to this natural boggy/peaty area since February. Ihe location is now dramatically dry...there are still few Cladonias, but completely dehydrated.
But they kept their shape/color.

Below : 3 different Cladonias on this image :

# Cladonia cristatella (British solder) with red apothecia;

# Cladonia portentosa (said Reindeer lichen) the curly one;

# Cladonia chlorophaea the funnel shaped

Z6 + Leica R apo macro 100mm f/2.8
Ratio : 1/1 manual stack of 9 shots.
@ f/11
1/640 sec, 400 iso

More pics will follow from February

Yes, it's a tiny world ! For those not interested by nature, they wouldn't even notice it... ;)
