Amazing what an expert can find…

just because they know where and what to look for. I am definitely going to be looking for this thing, though! I wonder if it occurs at high elevations in the Smokies. (That’d be a coup!)

I keep looking for it too

For me its one more thing that I might not notice unless for some reason it was already in my brain.

By the way, it really was very green. (It was a very wet day.) I do try to get my lichen colors close to true (quite a difficult problem). In this case I had to decrease color saturation.

This is one of my favorites of yours

What an interesting lichen! First time I saw your photo I immediately went through all my photos of Baeomyces rufus to see if I’d accidentally caught one myself. No dice. :)
