I Can’t Help It … Pareidolia

Hammered Shield Lichen Parmelia sulcata

I never saw the ‘face’ at the time of taking this photograph. It wasn’t until I got it on the PC screen that it was there in profile with its pointed chin, blunted nose and dark staring eye. Apart from looking like a face it is Hammered Shield Lichen (Parmelia sulcata) growing on a rotting branch.
