Could you please advise me on the best hand lense I should get for looking at lichens?
I have a rather large one that I used to use for needlework, but find its size cumbersome and that the reflections on its surface make seeing the lichens I'm trying to study and identify a bit difficult. I also have a very ancient watchmakers lense, but find with this one my nose is practically touching the object of my interest (yes, I know my nose is rather long!).
There must surely be something rather better for looking in the nooks and crannies of rocks by the sea, isn't there?
