Rachel's 1st observation!

Not having seen Rachel's name as a lichen poster and impressed by her photo I clicked on her name.

It appears this is her first observation on iSpot.

I don't give her 100%, as she has given no habitat notes (beyond 'Gardens and Parks'), but I wish others could manage the same photographic standard. This is beautifully sharp, good depth of field too, and it makes identification so much easier.

Rachel, please post more photographs and show others what they can achieve.

Hello Alan
I've only just seen your message - many thanks! I'm encouraged to get back out there with my camera - especially now spring is in the air as well.
All the best
