Fiddleheads

by Dave April. 26, 2012 2474 views

I was out trail walking today and found these ferns. The first few drops of rain began as I was lying on the forest floor taking these. I began the, jist over a kilometre walk out hoping to stay dry. I got back to the truck just before it started to pour rain. At least it wasn't snow today.

McMommy talked about fibonacci a while back. Here is an example in nature.

Can you guess why the unopened ferns were given this name?

I already know why so it wouldn't be a guess.
Wonderful shots Dave. Really good clarity.
BTW, I lie on the sand/dirt/rocks/tree stumps all the time to take photos. Can you imagine if a group of us went out shooting together? We'd look pretty funny.
