Textured lichen

Gray Lichen on Tree Trunk 8847

To say textured and lichen at the same time is to be redundant, but I wanted to emphasize the fine details in this patch of lichen as well as the roughness of the tree bark it was on. Notice also the rosy color in the upper part of the lichen, which I don’t recall ever seeing before.

This photograph comes from the same December 18th walk in the Upper Bull Creek Greenbelt that brought you the preceding pictures of leafminer trails and a colorful agarita leaflet.
