Sword Fern

How was everyone's weekend? Mine was great! A good balance of fun things to do, great people to see and hang out with, and time to relax and catch up on much needed napping ;)

Today's photo is a macro of a "baby" sword fern frond. It's the perfect time of year to see these. The forest is covered in them! And of course, the rainfall helps!


  1. An excellent shot, terrific textures and a perfect little droplet.

  2. I swear you and Victoria Daily Photo collaborate the night before on what you are going to post. That blog did a coiled fern post today as well!

    Back east, in Maine where I went to college, my roomie and I used to pick fiddleheads in the woods, cook em up in our hot pot and eat em w/ butter, salt and pepper. nummy!

  3. Absolutely wonderful macro!!!

    Glad to be following you...

  4. Awesome lighting and texture...one fine shot. We do not have any ferns like this here in Virginia that I have seen on our hikes. I wish we did have them because they are amazing. Fine photography.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
