Outdoor Hour Challenge this month features Moss, Lichens and Mushrooms
and this week we’d like to share our study on
Lichens abound on our farm … on rocks, trees, on old branches.
We loved the amazing variety in their colors and shapes.
We found examples of all three types of lichen as described below from Countryside Info ~
Later, we spotted this moth on our kitchen windowsill and knew immediately that it would be perfectly camouflaged on any lichen on a tree!
When Miss.L photographed the moth she noticed its tongue and quickly filmed it – sucking up the water splashes on the tiles! What a long proboscis!
Later in the week I suggested that Miss.L capture as many lichen samples that she can find with our digital camera and then prepare a collage – a lichen scavenger hunt!
Join us for your OHC discoveries!
