I watched a video of your region once, provided by someone on the forum - it is wildly beautiful, although I wouldn't switch it with our woods  :)
You're right about the mushrooms, don't worry I only have a purely ornamental interest in the scarlet cups.

A yellow lichen is spreading throughout the region on elder. I think it may be Xanthoria parietina.

I do not understand the sentence. in French it is translated as "yellow lichen on old men of the region"

Elder is the common English name of Sambucus  (Sureau) Cfred, and Xanthoria is the yellow lichen.

So he was saying that this yellow lichen is preading on all Sambucus in that region.

Birch trees with lichen. The dark one may be a Bryoria sp. It is several species in Norway.

Hello Cfred, I think your translation "yellow lichen on old men of the region" :D, is apt. We old men of the region do not move very fast and are likely to become lichen hosts.

In this case, you may be worthy of inclusion in a fairytale film  ;D :D :D :D

Hugo was there too!

The first photo is just after I had seen a deer disappear over the top of the hill and just as Hugo picked up the scent. Had he not been on his lead he would have disappeared too  ::)

The second as he scoured the scene for another.

Graham, your first image 3762, looks like a Polytrichum species.

I agree. Possibly P. commune.

I think the second picture is Hylocomium splendens.
