The many textures, colours and patterns on this wet rock in Canada's Banff National Park remind me that there is so much more to life than our eyes can see. This little ecosystem is like life in miniature, and if we put any of these mosses, algae or lichens (or whatever else they might be) under a microscope there would again be more textures, colours and patterns to see. Nature is truly amazing.
Apologies for the poor quality of this image. I was hand-holding my camera in very low light and didn't achieve the clarity I was hoping for.
