[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This staghorn fern (Platycerium grande) had spores on its underside, something that is rarely seen indoors. Taken at the Majorie McNally Conservatory, where there is an abundance of plants of all kinds, even in winter.

This is interesting Lois. Staghorn ferns grow well here in New Zealand and even better and more profusely in Australia. But I have never really looked to see the spores, so I must start checking them out.
Good shot of it; they are such interesting plants and you show this well. TFS

Hi Lois,
A very artistic composition on an interesting plant. I am guessing that you did not use a tripod, and handheld this shot. The plant is not quite as sharp as it should be. The colors are well saturated and beautiful. Your OOF backround is perfect.
