Mother Nature's Artistry

This month we have the trunk of an East Palatka Holly tree covered in many different types of lichens. The patterns continue all the way up the trunk and have been slowly evolving their designs over the years.
Mother Nature's Artistry is featured here on the last day of every month. Click here to view posts from recent months, and check back again next month to see what else Mother Nature has been up to!

Hi Jim, i've just been from a vacation in the province and i took photos of so many kinds of tree barks and lichen-spotted trunks too like this post. I will be posting them in the future. Unfortunately, there are forest tree barks which are lovely but i dont know the tree ID. They are beautiful pieces of nature art!
