    An entire ecosystem depends on the bark of this one tree in Mount Lebanon: moss, lichens, a bug, and tiny mushrooms. How tiny are they? Below is a left index finger for scale.

    Camera: Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3, showing off its impressive macro capability. These pictures came straight from the camera, with no cropping or editing. This is where old Pa Pitt mentions once again that he bought this camera for 99¢.
