[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These ferns have always facinated me, I've just recently learned their name while looking for a fern to photograph I decided to look these up and discovered they're "Maidenhair" ferns, Adiantum pedatum.

Family: Pteridaceae
Habitat: rich woodlands, often on limestone soil
Height: 12-18 inches
Location of spores: outer edges of leaflets (see bottom photo)
Stipe (leaf stalk): thin and wiry; black or dark brown
Growth pattern: random
Persistence: deciduous

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

Hello Lori,
Good details in the fern!
A fine repetition effect, very attractive colours...
I like the composition, as the plants are filling the frame!
