Pixie Cups

Visible to anyone in the world

This other-wordly organism is a lichen, "Pixie Cups", photographed by my brother Simon at Sandy Lodge in Bedfordshire.

Thius seems to be related to the so-called "Reindeer moss", also a lichen of the genus Cladonia, which contains 276 species. Some are quite startling in appearance, see here.
