  2. I love close up nature photography. The simplest things in nature can be so beautiful when to take the time to study it.

    1. It is amazing what you see on a photo that you never notice with the naked eye Kristen. For instance the little cup shapes that produce the spores or seeds.

  5. Great photo of something most people would just walk by… instead you capture the beauty of what it is.

    1. The photos are two kinds of lichen growing on our plum tree Jennifer.
      If you are interested I've written about what lichen are on my website here

      I think the first one is Xanthoria parietina as it is very common - I'm not too sure about the other one. Neither harm the trees,

      I will try to take part in your WW as much as I can if I have a photo worth sharing
