Lichen - Caloplaca marina, on sea defences, Leys Beach, Aberthaw.
The sulphur yellow of this lichen is evident on all the concrete blocks of the sea wall. Nature never fails to amaze me and one can only wonder at how this particular species survives in such a hostile environment where it is battered by the sea and so exposed to the elements. Tough stuff indeed.
