Today is the 147th birthday of Beatrix Potter. Although she is best know for her books geared toward children, she was also an amateur mycologist/lichenologist and produced many drawings of fungi. Here is one lichen drawing that she did. She was also a big proponent of the dual nature of lichens (i.e., that they represent a symbiosis of fungi and algae), which was still controversial in her day.
