This tree was halfway falling over. What was unusual about it was the large number of winged branches. I wonder what causes some trees to have a lot of these warty branches and others not so much?

This lichen was growing on a Red maple in the middle of a dried out vernal pool. I still managed to get my boots a bit wet, while trying to get to the lichens to photograph them. The H. minarum was growing alongside Punctelia missouriensis and some Cladonia.

Lobes are smooth, lacking pseudocephyllae. Much of the thallus surface is covered with brownish isidia, i.e., small projections which act as structures for vegetative reproduction. The isidia break off and are carried to other places by the wind, giving rise to a new thallus.

This lichen was growing on a Red maple in the middle of a dried out vernal pool. I still managed to get my boots a bit wet, while trying to get to the lichens to photograph them. The Punctelia missouriensis was growing alonside Hypotrachyna minarum and some Cladonia.

Punctelia missouriensis was first described as a new species 30 years ago in 1992:
https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/229445-Punctelia-missouriensis

Teal colored thallus with smooth, rounded lobes. The thallus is covered with numerous white isidia, which are essentially holes in the outer cortex, allowing the hyphae from the lower medulla layer to show through. The presence or absence of isidia, as well as their color is an important identification trait for lichens.

I believe the host is an atypical Norway maple leaf (Acer platanoides) - probably one of the young leaves from the upper canopy.

Compare to Rhytisma americanum:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/140312043

R. acerinum consists of black "squiggly little islands", whereas R. americanum looks more like an actual maze. R. americanum has a pattern that radiates outwards, sort of like the dendrons radiating outward from a neuron.

This was my first time seeing a Post oak in the fall. I had seen one small sapling out in the central pine barrens of Long Island this summer. This was one of several Post oaks here, at the northern section of Pelham Bay Park, well weathered by the winds and the salt air of the Long Island Sound. The crimson leaves were a sight to behold! The lower surfaces of the leaves were pink and velvety, with stellate (star shaped) hairs visible under a hand lens - presumably where the name Quercus stellata comes from. The leaves, with their distinctive, asymmetrical lobed shape - wide near the apex and narrow near the point of attachment - eventually will turn a warm pinkish brown color when they fall, as seen in some of the photos. The twigs were tan, fuzzy and had small reddish brown, round buds. The bark was flaky, reminiscent of Quercus alba. The windward side of the tree was missing much of the bark. The tree had a scraggly, scruffy, asymmetrical look to it and branches were missing.

They were clinging onto the trees, but when I took them in my fingers, they were mostly motionless and stiff. This particular lanternfly opened its wings to display the beautiful red inner markings. Perhaps that was her way of sending me an aposematic warning, saying "don't eat me!"
