Threading My Way through Pinecraft Park 4

I wonder if that blue-green color on the grass and dead leaf on the left is another lichen or paint.12252016-pinecraft-park-36

  1. I love it, but you know I’d love this…the grasses and feather play so well together. I wonder what makes that odd green color on the leaf blade?

    • Thanks, Lynn. I sure wish I knew where that odd green comes from. I even tried making it yellower in Lightroom, thinking it just didn’t register correctly in the camera. It wouldn’t budge. I suppose that doesn’t mean it registered correctly, though. Still, I’m voting for some kind of lichen. I almost passed up this feather; then I saw how its shape played with the grass.

      • Maybe it’s cyanobacteria! (Blue-green algae.) I found that color on a tree stump today . . .

        • That reminds me, there’s a lichen that grows on wood which is that color, too. Oh, check this out! It’s not a lichen, it’s a fungus.

          It’s more temperate than tropical, apparently, but maybe….???

          • I was all set to agree with you. That’s certainly the color. But botanist husband Davide says no because it’s a wood-rotting fungus and wouldn’t know what to do with grass or old leaves. Shoot. At least he agreed that it is “another organism.”
