Pixie Cups, Cladonia fimbriata

The cool, wet weather has started to revive the Pixie Cup Lichen on our property. I mainly see them growing on rocks, which seems like an unfriendly place to live! The tallest Pixie Cup in the photo is only 3/4" high. The first picture was taken at f13. The second picture is a composite of 5 images that were taken a week later (after it had been raining) that have been stacked and blended with Photoshop CS4 to give an extended depth of field.
