We've all ooohed and aaahed at ferns but how many of us ever get to turn over the fronds and look beneath at the great diversity and pattern of reproductive structures?
Ferns are best seen in diversity by looking under the leaves
I am taking a rest today from weightier matters by touching base with nature. I have always liked the simplicity of ferns, not only for the lovely places the grow in, but also for the seemingly sameness with which they are camouflaged.
These few pictures illustrate this quite well.
