On a fallen tree in Bird Park, Mount Lebanon.
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¢.
A lichen expert would probably know right away what kind of lichen these are, but Father Pitt does not. He always appreciates help in the comments. The color is one of old Pa Pitt’s favorites in all of nature.
