• Height: 12-18 inches

I took this photo on the Eagle Creek Trail in the Columbia River Gorge.

Just beautiful Lori! What a wonderful display of the Maidenhair ferns - there are many different types of these ferns, and these here look so attractive. I like their thin black stems/ stipes - one of the signs of a Maidenhair I think, plus the bright green colours too.
It's a great display, TFS
Good details in the fern!
A fine repetition effect, very attractive colours...
I like the composition, as the plants are filling the frame!
