I thought you might like these moss-filled pawprints in concrete which I saw earlier. :-)
Tumblr media
ID: a row of medium sized pawprints, most likely a dog's, dried into the concrete of a pavement kerb. Time and rain has filled the pawprints in with green moss or lichen. The pavement is glowing in the sunlight and you can see the sitting shadow of a dog beside me.
Tumblr media
ID: A closeup on one of the moss/lichen pawprints, almost perfectly filled in.

LICHEN
Lichen are compound organisms. They’re communities of various species, needing each other to live as one.  
Tumblr media
The main body of the lichen is fungal, but rather than consuming some food source, the fungi partner with a photosynthesizing biont, either algae or cyanobacteria depending on the lichen species.
Tumblr media
Recent research shows that lichen are even weirder than people thought, having at least three symbionts or more, including a second fungi.  Yeast.
Tumblr media
They can be strangely mesmeric with their little and often colorful complexities.
Tumblr media
Right at home living on rocks or wood, they’re often right amongst heaps of moss or liverwort.  
Tumblr media
Mixed up like that, it might be easy to confuse them with plants.
Tumblr media
But their colors and shapes give them away.  Structure can vary greatly.  Shrubby, leafy, crusty or powdery. 
Tumblr media
Lichen can be found all over the world, including Antarctica, as they resist extremes in conditions.  
But they are awfully vulnerable to air pollution, making them obvious indicators of air quality. 
Places with greater diversity of any life really but particularly lichen are probably healthier and less polluted.
I usually photograph fungi near my home in Cleveland, but I traveled to Appalachian Pennsylvania to find these beauties all on the same walk. 
Not used to this kind of access to my lichen friends, it felt to me like some kind of wonderland!

Mycena haematopus, which I've seen called Bleeding Mycena or Bleeding Fairy Helmet. But never anything about nipples, which, if we're being real, these totally look like.
Also some fuzzy Schizophyllum and lichen!

Lecidea silacea
I have been having a really blah day, and so I needed a colorful lichen to brighten my mood. I am not sure it gets any brighter than L. silacea! This crustose lichen has a thick thallus of bright rusty-red or orange. It is cracked and tile-like, with black apothecia dotting the surface. It grows on acidic rock in arctic-alpine habitats in Europe, Greenland, and North America. Never let a bad day go by without reminding yourself that the world is full of adorable little lichens that look like squishy little piles of clay but are actually very hard and durable and will most likely outlast you on this godforsaken world. Where was I going with this? Oh yeah, isn't L. silacea so cute???
