Lichening strikes again

I like lichen. I was going to say that I liken lichen to nothing else, but in looking at this picture taken on the Brushy Creek Regional Trail on November 19, I have to admit that these lichen formations, especially the tan-tinted ones, look to me like fallen autumn leaves. And the tree on which this lichen was growing had fallen as well, so there’s a double connection to the season.

The punning title of today’s post is a reminder that a picture of quite a different sort of lichen appeared in these pages on October 11.
