[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's a photo from my "moss & lichens" collection.

This is a British Soldier Lichen (Cladonia macilenta). It is one of the showiest fruiting lichens. Fruticose lichens are the most highly developed lichens. Their branches are much closer in form to "true" branches although, unlike most plants, the lichen branch has no specialized vascular system for transporting fluids. Even though the mushrooms are quite tiny, their bright color and distinctive form makes them stand out in their forest habitat.
