~ I got the chance to photograph some of the Arctics Lichen's on my most recent trip to the Canadian Arctic Circle, a lot of them only a few millimetres in size (Photographed with a macro lens) it kind of looks like I was underwater on a corral but these nest around the rocks and soils of our Arctic. Some of these only grow at 0.09mm a year and live in excess of 4,500 years so enjoy and remember, Look before you step! 🙂
