Here are a couple of submissions to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere challenge.
I’m a big fan of early lifeforms such as mosses and lichens (pronounced liken.)
Let’s take a closer look. Mosses, much like plankton (the earliest form of plant life) are highly dependent on an immediate supply of water.
Here we have some pretty pink buds alongside another, hardier moss.
Next we have lichens which are a beautiful example of symbiosis between algae (or cyanobacteria) living among filaments of multiple fungi species. Lichens have properties different from those of their component organisms. Wikipedia
