Here is a shot of some lichen I found on a tree...I walk to work and spotted this Lichen and thought it was rather cool looking. They almost look like Tentacle suction cups. The small mustard colored one is rather nice also. No ID so far. Field of view is 2"

Looking at the apothecium, the cup or saucer-like fruiting bodies of the lichen, I would venture a guess as it being a Hoary Rosett but there are a couple of others that look similar also. The thallus of the lichen you have here is similar to the Hoary Rosett but then again, there are still a few others that have the same resemblence. Probably the best way to ID the lichen would or might be a spot test or chemical analysis. A good shot of them Doug.
The yellow one is a Candleflame - maybe candelaria concolor. It usually grows on the same tree with Star Rosette Physcia stellaris one of the leaf lichens. Lichens are a great indicator of good air quality. A facinating subject for macro photography. Really beautiful. Great photo.
