Thanks Craig!
I'm new to ID almost anything in nature, until recently my only interests was if I can get a good picture of it, or if I can eat it... :)
Since I discovered Noah, I'm learning a lot!

Loving your Lichen spottings! I'm afraid I'm still learning to ID them but I know this is a real gem!

I wish I could help Id this for you! Just wanted you to know that I think it is an awesome spotting and photo!

Nice spotting MihaiER, I think it could be Physconia distorta but it is difficult to know because is hard to have a good view of the thallus. Check also Physcia aipolia
