Lichen, Moss and a shroom at Moredon Bog.

Visited Moredon Bog on a changeable afternoon today, with the weather bright, then hail, then bright sunlight.   This made the shooting of the moss and fungi, that I took after the rain, interesting with the rain drops on them.  The Lichen shot that I took today, just before sheltering under a tree whilst the hailstorm took place for a good 30mins was in slightly darker conditions.  This meant to get a reasonable shot with a good depth of field, and had travelled light without my tripod, that using my MT-24ex Macro Flash was a necessity.

The other shots are all handheld in natural light only.
