Jelly fungus, moss, lichen

Growing on the same dead bough: a jelly fungus, possibly witch’s butter, a feathery carpet of moss, a non-flowering plant, and just a little pale green foliose (leaf-like) lichen. All lichens are composites of two different creatures: one a fungus, the other a photosynthesiser – either an alga or a cyanobacterium.
