lingonberry, the remainders of an unknown bird's egg, lichen and moss growing on rocks
greater plantain and equisetum
some kind of goldenrods and false lily of the valley
fireweed, it seems very popular with bees, bumblebees and other insects.
more fireweed, including what seems a paler variant, with bees, bumblebees and an interesting beetle i never noticed before, a eurasian bee beetle.
common cow-wheat, twinflower and wild chamomile
the first cloudberry fruit i've seen in the forest this year, dwarf cornel, ferns and boreal vetch
@crowlad Looks like some kind of thrush egg to me. Possibly blackbird.
@crowlad really like that last one, all are lovely photos, but the mix of the mini tree-like misses and dead leaves is a great contrast
@crowlad While there's some moss here, what you have in focus is actually lichen. However, both are equally fascinating. More moss macro content please!
@stianhunstad true, unfortunately i'm not aware of a nice hashtag such as mosstodon for lichen on here yet 😅 and i really need to learn more about both mosses and lichens, they're all fascinating in their own right.
from time to time i post similar photos on here (mostly under that hashtag unless i forget), although more often during the colder season when there are fewer fancy flowers taking up my attention in the forest.
@crowlad I'll be sure to use the hashtag myself when I go mossing about with a macro lens come late summer/early autumn 🙂
