Winter moss, 4

In two previous posts about moss, the subjects were very small, about the size of golf balls. Today the targets were much larger. The moss in the first photo is only about six inches long, but the rest are all quite large, roughly two feet or so across. These reside on large rocks near the river, just above the water, and they struck me because of their diversity  of color, ranging from bright green to gold and a blend everything in between.

From about the middle of May through the middle of June, these will all be under the water of the spring snow melt, and yet they seem to suffer no harm.
