Flavoparmelia caperata aka Common greenshield lichen

Inspired on Kozuka [photoblog.com]Lichens ;))

Lichens for who doesnt know are living beings! They are a mix of fungus and algaes, saying it by itself! They are very easy to find, expecially on trees or rocks! They also are usefull for scientists, since they can show if the air is polluted!
