[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Everinnia prunastri, Oak Moss, is a rather common lichen found mostly on oak trees, but on other species as well. This lichen is harvested commercially in south-central Europe, and sent to France, where perfumes are extracted from it.

P.S. Sorry for using 'Plants' in the 'Genre' window...

Hello Ishi,
A fine capture of this species of lichen that is also common in Sweden.
I think it should be 'Evernia'.
The category under plants can be considered correct as lichens are a symbiosis of fungi and algae.
Nice sharpness, colours and contrast with the dark BG.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hi Ishi,
