Caption: Lichen (Parmelia laevigata) growing on the bark of a rowan tree (Sorbus aucuparia) near the coast. A lichen is a symbiotic organism comprising an alga and a fungus. The alga produces carbohydrates for the fungus by photosynthesis, and the fungus protects the alga from harsh conditions. Photographed near the Sound of Mull, Scotland.
