A Lichen and a Moss

It has been a while since I posted any photos, so here a couple I took in the summer.  Above is a lichen, probably of the genus Cladonia.  The red structures are called astrocarps which contain asci which are small bags of spores.

And this is the sporophyte (fruiting structure) of a moss, probably of the genus Sphagnum.
