Strange Bedfellows - Prickly Pear & Lichen

  1. I always though lichen was a cool/damp climate plant. This scene surprised me a little - especially in the heart of Texas during a severe drought.

    Lichens are tough plants. They can thrive on rock faces anywhere, cold, hot. humid, dry, whatever.

    Wow ..what a great shot.

    If you would crop it just above the rock.
    Me I would saturate the colors selectivly perhaps :>))))))

    I really like that Rock and the two cactus on the right side of image.
  4. They do make a good pairing!

    If you have the chance to get back there, it might be fun to try to get just the right side of the rock and its neighboring cacti with a bit more depth of field . . . although this advice comes from someone who could always crop better - LOL!
