Friday morning hugs to you, dear Margie.

you must have the most powerful eyes for spotting such tiny traces of that pink lichen, that's breathtaking. I had seen red/brick ones too, but pink ... I doubt. I'll keep my eyes even more peeled now ! LOL
Oh, and that teeny tiny snail is absolutely adorable !


amazing! you've got quite an eye. it makes me want to walk with more awareness.


so very beautiful and special indeed


could it be a slime mold on the branch? there is a slime mold that is commonly called "wolf's milk" that forms spheres when it is "fruiting". Just a thought, I could not see it well enough to tell if that was it or not.

love the pictures. i check them out everyday! :-)


What a beautiful pink!


It's gorgeous and that tiny snail is so cute.


I used to have an apple tree that got a fungus on it-- it looked a little like this!! Kind of like bug eggs... the only way to help the poor tree was to cover it in a tar like substance. Nasty. Sure, pretty colour but poor tree!


I am fairly sure that this is a lichenicolous fungus called Illosporiopsis christiansenii.
See www.i-spot.org.uk and search for "pink lichen"
