Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Red Lichen


 Have to say, I have never seen anything quite like this, it is Red lichen, Cryptothecia rubrocincata.

This was found along the Rosemary Ridge Trail Loop at the Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens in Jacksonville, Florida.  I want to thank Lad Hawkins and Lynda Aycock of the Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens for the assistance in identifying this lichen.
