I am a amateur photographer I found some interesting things when I got home and looked at my photos. There are some blue/white cocoon. I like structures on top of the sunburst lichen. I live in Colorado and took these photos on January 23.

    $\begingroup$ I have improved your title a bit but this is not sufficient. Please describe what you tried to capture in the photograph (name of the fungus), your geographical location and climatic conditions. $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Jan 24 '17 at 5:43

    $\begingroup$ Are you telling about these? Adding pointing would help the question improve a lot. If you dont like to kill the artistic value of the photoes, then you may add this one instead . $\endgroup$ – Always Confused Jan 24 '17 at 7:00
  • $\begingroup$ As well, the fungus is some sort of Ascocarp of apothecial type of development $\endgroup$ – Always Confused Jan 24 '17 at 7:04

  • $\begingroup$ I had trouble doing this on my phone but I appreciate your time. I'll keep in eye out more of these because I can't find the good image of them on Google. So I might be able to upload some better images to the Internet. $\endgroup$ – Zachariah Alexander Ruggles Jan 24 '17 at 8:18

The small blue creatures coould possibly be (oribatid) mites. I have them under my the binocular when I study lichen pretty often. Their asociation with lichen is well documented
