photographing and learning about wildlife
I liked how you described the setting and the temperature! I got a little confused in the middle about the white lichen. Are they the same? Other than that great job! It was nice to learn about new lichen too!
Keep up the great work!
I really liked how you were very descriptive with your field notes and where you found the lichen. Although next time, I would make sure you have pictures that are less blurry. It was very good how you showed scale in the photos, which helps it be identified. There was a question that I had, were there any other species of lichen other than itself? But great job with your work and I did learned a little more. We should compare information because I came up with the same thing!
So, I found a mushroom that LOOKS like yours, it has the same color and reddish top. Although it looks like mine, some of our characteristics don't match. The top of your mushroom indents while mine doesn't. At the end of my research I came to the conclusion mine was a California Mushroom. We might (probably) have a different mushroom than each other with all these mushrooms this year! Nice Job!
