Morning walk 22-06-08 Part 3

Going past a tree on the bank, I saw this pretty lichen growing and thought you might find it interesting. The whole thing is smaller than a dime.
I think this might be some kind of meal bug or something. There were two of them on this thorn tree, each about 4mm in length.
This tiny little cactus is about 3 inches tall…still a baby.
The grass and weeds are over my head in places, you can see it is the end of the season.
Along the route, I saw this small wild fern. I do not know if you have the same broad leaf variety there? This plant is about 4 inched tall.
