Introduction & Lichen Madness

Post by Biologyben »

Howdy. Google searches led me to your site as i contemplate my future DSLR setup. Then I noticed the profusion of lichen pics on the forum and must contrubute my own. This was taken in the Chuska mountains of New Mexico at around 7800 ft in elevation.

A very nice set of photographs there Ben. Those bright orange lichens may be Xanthoria elegans. Being sort of new to lichen study at the moment I would not venture to say exactly. By the way, I seem to be a bit late but let me welcome you to the forums. Your search on Google brought you to one of the best macro and microphotography sites on the web. Err...yes we are quite proud of ourselves :wink: Again, some very nice images and we hope to see more Ben, thanks! :D

Welcome Biologyben! :D Very nice, at first I thought it was underwater. 8)
The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D
