Nice one, John. You've reminded me about a trail I haven't walked this Spring.
These are so cool, guess I never noticed a closed fern!
These look so exotic as they begin to open
Looks like a committee meeting to discuss the day's agenda. I admire your focusing on the potential fronds. Those are soft spring colors about to burst.
Nice composition. They look as if they feel a bit tentative about opening.
Very interesting shot.
