A couple more unknowns

We’ve just spent some time in the north Georgia mountains near the North Carolina border. The weather wasn’t fully cooperative but I did find some interesting things on my walks. I noticed some specks of red in the moss and vegetation along the road. Looking closer, I found these small red mushrooms. The biggest was only about 20mm across.


I also found some lichens which also were showing some red color. I think this is one called British Soldier from the color. To give you an idea of the size, the nail there is a large landscape nail but, even though it is large as a nail goes, the head is still only about 10mm across.

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
