My personal vehicle's come due for some routine maintenance and yesterday was a reasonably dry interlude between episodes of wet weather for getting most of the work done. A couple of the local species have been doing well in the protected microsite under the bonnet which receives runoff from the windscreen.

76 stack around 0.2x. The colonies have been relocated to a less mobile position with a substrate they might remain successful on.

71 stack of a Didymodon clump (would need to dissect and measure for species).

I love the ice crystals.
Got lucky with the weather. :)

At forum resolution it's helpful to crop in for the chloroplasts and cell wall jointing. The chloroplasts are around 7 μm across and the cells roughly 50 μm.

For as much as I complain about Helicon, this was a tricky alignment due to tens of microns of camera vibration on a soft forest floor and 7.6.1 handled it quite well.
