Lovely lichens

Lichens are tricky things to identify to species level and I'm not going to try here, but I was very impressed with the variety of lichens on these two fallen twigs I found in Colinton Dell alongside the Water of Leith.

 Aren't they beautiful?

This sounds somewhat melancholy, but I love lichens and mosses particularly because they have been on Earth very very long before the time of mankind and I'm sure they will be on Earth very very long after mankind...
