Fire on the Rock

I love orange lichens... actually - as a general rule I just plain have a soft spot for lichens. They are a cool heterotroph-autotroph team even if it is still undecided whether the fungi enslaves the bacteria or if the bacteria actually gains anything from the partnership.

I had a pretty nice photo of orange lichen on rocks that I took a couple weekends ago. I like your pictures better though since its a close-up. Maybe I'll try to post mine up in the not too distant future.
