Natural History Photographs


In the early morning we drove to the west of Omalós, and not far away made our first stop to explore the wood fringe next to the road. I found an endemic Arum as well as many beautifully developed lichens, growing on the trunks and branches of Cypress and Cretan maple (Acer sempervirens).
