    So, what did we do for our 23rd wedding anniversary? Go on a lichen field trip, of course! Doesn't everybody?

    Dunkeld in Perthshire, one of my favourite places. All phone shots here. I did take three 120 films, but they'll be off to the lab for a week or two.

    Huawei P9, no editing. The first will be our Christmas Card this year...

    I very much like these! I would like them even more if these instructive photos were accompanied with names...:D

    She's working on it, after doing a one-day course on lichen identification...

    Wonderful set and love the 'portraits' of Susan! :)

    I do like lichens and somewhere I have a loads of photographs of them on ancient monuments in Germany, Czech Republic, Austria and Greece that were taken as part of a project I was working on a few years back. They were mainly taken to support the identifications done.

    Thanks, Raza.

    Thanks, Pete. You'd love Dunkeld - it's covered in lichens of many types.

    I should take some picture in our local graveyard - there's a good crop there although I have never really looked to see what the diversity is right. Hmm, maybe a short project is in order!

    Indeed. I'd like to map one tree over 100 years, but I might not live that long...but Rhona could carry on my work!
