When I first visited Mazomanie Oak Barrens…

When I first visited Mazomanie Oak Barrens State Natural Area a few months ago, everything was still blanketed in snow, but I noticed a surprising amount of lichen diversity on fallen logs, tree trunks, and branches (see this short video I took). Today I returned to find EVEN MORE lichen diversity that had been revealed by the snow melt. Many of them were a bit crispy from a recent (last fall, maybe) prescribed burn, but no less gorgeous.
