    Sometimes nature's tiny things can resemble its grandest ones. The rocky volcanic landscape of the Lake Myvatn region in northern Iceland creates a habitat for colorful lichens. Looking down on this little patch of earth, for a moment I could believe I was gazing up at a vivid night sky. Lichens are hardy organisms that can survive in extreme conditions, but they also serve as warnings for climate change. Some of Iceland's lichen species are at risk of becoming extinct as the climate warms.
