Lesser Celandines have been enjoying the recent sunshine.
The other day I showed ditch liverworts. This is a very common liverwort on trees: Frullania dilatata. I find this everywhere, even in the wildlife deserts to be found inside Spruce plantations. Individual leaves on this species are sub-millimetre in size. Patch about 6 cm. across.
There are, of course plenty of lichens in the shot, including Pertusaria sp. (pale green, top centre and top right) and a Graphis sp. (bottom centre).
As I was looking at the Hazel catkins, I noticed that the river was very much smoother than usual. The Finn can be quite ferocious at times.
Notice the astonishing depth of field (100m?) for a macro lens! I only managed that because I'm experimenting with ISO 1600, which is as fast as the camera goes. Not too noisy, I think. The image stats say 160th at f22.
And this astonishing shot is very rare to find locally. This is the con-trail of a jet reflected in the water surface.
I don't expect to find a blue sky, never mind a glass-like river surface.
