Very godo the close approach!
I like the texture and graphic aspect of the image that you present us.
It can be well appreciated the form and progression of every single leaf, like a pattern.
Found so interesting and instructive your info about N. Zealand and its ferns.
Congratulations and thanks for the post.
Still at it, shooting away at your favourite subject "ferNZ", and as usual you have the perfect feel and well developed touch to get the best out of your subject. This fern is just beautifully captured and presented.
The mosaic of tiny leaves is stunning and very pleasing on the eye and the specific POF created some very interesting angles and lines. Lovely colours and splendid details make this a pleasure to take a look at.
Well done and TFS MF.
PS1. Nearly Super 14 time again, but I think I'm in for a rough ride this year with all the daily power cuts we're experiencing countrywide. The sad news is that there is no light at the end of the tunnel either. Anyway, are you and Dave ready for it – pencils sharpened and bets placed? Btw, please be so kind and send me the web page for the picks again. I seem to have wiped mine.
PS2. Keep your eyes peeled for a sneak preview of a theme on "Janice's FERNZ".
Lovely patterns in this one of the ... ferns,well composed picture,on my walk in the forest today I saw only the remainings of summer,brown,wet and flattened ferns,anyway not so long to go before the start to relive again here,thanks
This is a beautifully composed pattern of fern fronds with fine sharpness, colours and lighting.
Ferns are great but it's a pity that nearly all are inedible!
Thanks for sharing this one,
A fine abstract composition capturing a fern's beauty and detail. Framing is exceptional.
Through your photography I have come to appreciated the many links between New Zealand and the Pacific Northwest of the USA.
Ferns are one of the most common flora found in the temperate rain forests of the Pacific Northwest. They are everywhere. Being so common you'd thing I'd have better photographs to show of them, but I don't. Sometimes it is easy to miss the forest for the trees. I will have to photograph some Oregon ferns just for you. But until then the only ones I've got are ancillary to other photographs:

I expect your ferns in NZ are similar to those in Australia if not the same. I was most impressed by the enormous size of them in Australia. This is a beautiful close-up showing the details of the leaves. Well composed too.
TFS and have a good day! Ulla

Hi Janice..My New Zealand fern girl :)
And having 164 different species has given you plenty of ammunition..
Interesting patterns & details in your closeup comp, nice color.

Hi Janice. Good to see a close up of NZ ferns. When a tramper at NPBHS in Taranaki, we spent days pushing through ferns on Mt Egmont. Now not seeing these so often it indicates what a special and pleasant soft plant they can be. Good clarity and most interesting notes. TFS. Murray.

I simply love patterns. This particular image reminds me so much of my home in Mendocino on the Northern Coast of California..If you have heard of it, then perhaps you know..but if not I suggest you look it up...it is a garden of eden discovered by many...
wonderful work with patterns gets a A plus from me....very nice image and so well composed..You really put your heart into your posts!
