Again a realy mini-world image! A detail on the capsules and calyptra of Orthotrichum anomalum (Anomalous Bristle-moss / Gesteelde haarmuts), the same tuft I showed the two previous days. After a few rainy days, the light was beautifull, so I took the opportunity to make lots of images on this atrractive moss-species. It is not uncommon in the area, but I'm sure most people just don't look at them ...
