Deer Lichen Diversity - puffs image

This sea foam mass of vegetation is powder-puff lichen or deer moss. It is the most prevalent reindeer lichen in this area of NW Florida. I believe it is Cladonia evansii. Looking at the variation in color and branch size, it has an organic inner diversity or range of variation. And yet, like soap bubbles, there is an overall consistency of form. The image is a detail of the World Wide Panorama entry for March, 2009 on the theme: diversity. Photographed 2009, March 22 North of Hwy. 30-A contingent to Cassine Trail access to Pt. Washington State Forest.
