I think your forest loves you so much that it will never stop inventing new wonders to amaze you !
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

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! :-)

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"
