Here's a shot from today, a tiny moss that only grow on the nutrient-rich 
patches of yesteryear's excrements of specific animals.

In this case most likely a cake of cow dung. Related species of moss specialise on moose 
dung or lemming dung, to name a couple. The "umbrella" produce a scent 
attractive to flies, and use them to propagate its spores. It is the only moss known to 
use insects to spread.
K-3 and DFA 100/2.8 macro.
