A perfect image demonstrating your accompanying notes.
Well I would have to say I enjoyed the 101 on ferns, I have very little knowledge on any flora and would of guessed some strange insect came along and attached their eggs to the underside of the silver fern. But thanks to you I now know. :)
Nice to see your post on TN. I guess that I never thought about ferns too much, except as decoration for flowers that I might buy for my wife. I appreciate the quick intro to them. I like your attractive, detailed and colourful photo. I was a bit confused initially about the green ferns and silver ferns. But, now I see that the tops (and possibly the entire other sides) of the silver ferns are green. Your DOF could have been a bit longer in this shot, in order to better include the top row of silver ferns. The blurred BG is great. Very effective and interesting submission. TFS.

Nice to see you here again and with a beautiful Fern close-up taken from a lovely POV. Excellent details and colours and very nicely framed!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Very interesting fern, and well prezented by you! The spores are contrasting with the silver color of the leaves in a pleasant way! Nice composition too!

Superb capture of the frond of this endemic NZ fern. The silver underside showing the spore capsules is well shown with nice sharpness and colours to make an attractive image.
Thanks and greetings from a warm summery Sweden.
Great view of the silver underside Janice, nice details with the tiny spores clearly seen..
The Silver Fern may be iconic to New Zealand.
But to me, it will always be "iconic" of my good friend Janice Dunn :)
