Thanks Alan

It seems that I always start taking pictures when the sun has already set, or light is poor. At the best of times find the Cladonias difficult to capture clearly, not certain that I'll get back there.
I've linked this find to our ZA site and had positive feedback re your helpful comments.
Much appreciated.
