Lichen in the light


Walking a¬†valley in the prairie bring me into a different world. The trees grow taller and the shade is cool on a hot day. If you look at the beams on sunlight making their way past the leaves you can see the smallest details of nature. The lichens and mosses that grow where others won’t. the balance of moisture and shad help them to flourish. It’s the small things in nature that catch my attention.
