|August 2004 Index page
location : Lackawanna county, PA, a very rocky slope which is covered with different kinds of Lichen and a stand of Spiranthes cernua. ( see the doublet on that page, in 2004 there are now at least 12 flowering spikes).
|Most of the wildflowers on that hill are very much stunted.|
|These Lichen are Cladonia cristatella or British soldiers. They are the most colorful and so to be spotted most easily. The tiny clump below measures about one centimeter across.|
|I took this picture last year at the same location - and many many others|
