Lichen on An Ancient Rock

This lichen was growing on an ancient rock. Of course you can't tell how old the stone is but it is very old as it is part of the foundations of an Iberian town. The Iberians were living in this part of Europe long before the Romans came to "civilize" them. I will show you the ruins some time this week. For the moment, I just wanted to share the texture with you.

    The texture really is worth of posting !
    Did you know, that some species of lichen are very responsive ( I don´t
    know, is this a right word ) to a pollution. Even in Finland has tree lichens vanished because of air pollution.
    It could be very interesting to hear you telling about Iberians and their history. I know, you have got many "visitors" during centuries. Our "visitors" were only Swedish few centuries and after that Russian about hundred years :)
