Life Finds a Way

Photographer's Statement:

Who would have thought that a dot of green moss could effect the ecosystem around it so much? With those green dots, which grew on the base of a tree, ecosystems have a place to live. They give the coverage needed to keep the tree healthy. Every part of the forest is essential to a thriving planet.
