Macrophotography / Microphotography of Lichen; 67 Macrophotographic Images of Lichen
Through the macrophotography of lichen, we will journey into a magical kingdom that the woodland fairies secretly inhabit. We will be viewing their world much closer than usual and will be intrigued by the beauty that continuously lays at their feet. Macrophotography makes this possible for us mere humans.
You will journey through a world padded with the color and texture of lichen. You will be able to view this world up close and personal through the magic of macrophotography which brings tiny details into amazing focus.
Lichen is a very interesting subject - not quite fungus and not quite algae. Instead, the two organisms are layered together in a symbiotic relationship that benefits both.
Macrophotography will allow you to discover remarkable features about the lichen that you would not otherwise have been able to see with the naked eye. And you can take as long as you want searching for a fairy who might have been caught peering out just as the photography snapped the shot.
So come and take a magical journey through the macrophotographic world of the intriguing lichen.

Through the macrophotography of lichen, we have traveled into an amazing and magical world of beauty and have viewed lichen from a whole different perspective - one of exquisite splendor. Many times we overlook these small delicate fungi, never realizing the simple beauty of their world. Through the use of macrophotography, we moved in for a closer look and were surprised to find a kingdom we never knew existed.
