The mini forest beneath our feet
We don't always look down, but it can be a fascinating exercise when we do.
In the right conditions between the rocks, if there is enough moisture around we can find a veritable rain forest of intricate diversity beneath our toes.
In this one square foot there are over 10 different species of moss and other plants.
Take a look at all the variety in this close up.
Spiky ones like palm trees, small fluffy ones, ground huggers etc.
pineapple like ones, long flat ones, little bulbous ones, all the shapes and miniature sizes you can think off.
Even miniature flowers smaller than a fingernail.
