Just a quick note to ask you for an image identification. I am currently “investigating” aesthetic universalism and relativism, see prev post. I came across the photo below by googling for “ugly plants”:
Please help me identify the name of this moss species
Ugliness in nature is best represented by the notion of the sublime. But there are many animals and plants out there which we just plain consider ugly, without an inkling of sublimity. See for example the Komodo dragon, and this.
If you know of more pointers, please let me known.
The moss photo was probably taken at Bolivia’s salt flat Salar de Uyuni, see this photo.
