Lichen with a view

Buy Add to Lightbox
This white ascomycete lichen is growing on a rock wtih a view of a stream.  The dark circles on the lichen's body are fruiting bodies (reproductive structures).  The main lichen in view are foliose, but there also appear to be a few crustose on the rock too. From Greg's and my hike in Upper Hot Spring Canyon in the Cleveland National Forest.
