[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Dutch]
The just flared crimson buds of the elder (Sambucus nigra) contrast beautifully with the common orange lichen(Xanthoria parietina).
Common orange lichen is a widespread lichen and grows on nutrient-rich sites and indicates that there is much ammonia in the air.

Hi Bernd,

Well done! I like the sharp focus on the lichen. The gradient from brown to blue of the backround is a perfect backdrop for the elder buds. Are the white lines spider webs? There is so much biodiversity in such a small space!

Thanks for sharing!


Hi, it is some Xanthoria species, and in the left some other lichen, Physcia sp., I suppose.
