14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tiny Tree

I was taking pictures of acrobat ants (Crematogaster sp.) when I noticed this lichen Order (Lecanorales) shaped like a tiny tree, then locate the camera to photograph the lichen just when an ant came into the scene to scale and strengthen the feeling of tiny tree.
