Fun with lichen

Lichen on a gravestone, originally uploaded by Mycologista.

Lichen on a gravestone in Mansfield, MO.

We went to this old cemetery on the way home after several days of playing in the water on the Little Niangua. There was great lichen in wild colors growing on lots of headstones, and it was all dry as a bone, as it hadn't rained in several weeks. I can only imagine how technicolor it would be after a long, cool rainy spell...

But, now I know a good place to look for stuff. Lichen, in cemeteries.
