Lichens are not the easiest of organisms to identify or take photographs of.  At this time of year however, with little vegetation and damper conditions they do stand out.  A Hawthorn tree on one of the net ride paths is covered with lichens and its red berries, make a very colourful photograph.

An old Gorse shrub is covered with lichens of a different sort.

If conditions are just right then the water droplets caught in the cups can make beautiful subjects to photograph.  These ones had some water but not quite enough.
