    Found on the same log as the previous 2 posts.
    While the yellow ones may be Xanthoria parietina - Maritime Sunburst,
    don't know if the whitish and the brownish ones are the same ?
    Kindly enlighten please.

    Hi David,
    Thank you for sharing your photo of this lovely lichen community.
    I agree Xanthoria parietina. Also top right whitish one is a Parmelia. Similar size whitish one on left, and smaller one lower middle is a Physcia, probably P. adscendens.
    As well there is a marvellous collection of crustose lichens across the entire surface of the photo. Some look like Lecanoras (possibly including Lecanora pacifica) and there are other types as well here.

    Many many thanks for your speedy reply.
    I went to Iona again this morning but was
    able to relocate the same log. But took some
    others with a proper macro lens in lieu of
    yesterday's wide angle one. However, I relocated
    yesterday's blue morph snow goose out of a
    flock of 500.

    Actually euphemistic naming of a black morph.
