Green Antarctica

Green Antarctica
Plant life is remarkably resilient. It can be found growing even in the permanent cold of Antarctica in the form of lichens and mosses, such as this. On the right is a section of Adelie penguin egg shell. Contact with moss, such as this, probably explains the green stain on the penguin seen in the note.

A very interesting moss. Its time may be coming, with climate change.

Thank you, everyone for your kind comments and faves. I find it remarkable that some vegetation has survived down there, despite the cold. Nature is indeed marvellous!
