Beautiful! I love fern just before it uncurls. Have to get to the forest to snap some of those, too…

Thanks Kiki! Me too, I’ve been going to the forest once a week to follow the developments.. I still haven’t got exactly the picture I want, but maybe next week… 😉

This is wonderful, Calee!

Thanks so much, Lisa! I love fern, especially now in the spring 🙂

Thank you, Giuseppe! 🙂

Lovely. They are amazing. I’ve been taking some photos of them this weekend – still to process, but they will appear on my blog soon!
May 12, 2013 at 6:35 PM
Thank you! I’ll keep an eye out for your fern shots!
May 12, 2013 at 6:38 PM
Very nice. One of my favorite subjects. I know that poor lighting can be a challenge under a forest canopy, but I would try for just a tad more depth of field.
May 12, 2013 at 7:27 PM
Thanks Nick! It wasn’t too dark, but the background looked cluttered.. I’m going back to the forest again, hoping to take a good fern shot when they open up just a little bit more.
May 12, 2013 at 7:52 PM
Gotcha. Have fun and good luck!
May 12, 2013 at 11:07 PM
Thanks Nick! Friendly feedback like this is the best reason for keeping blogging. I really appreciate your input! 🙂

One of my favorite plant subjects – they’re so cool as they uncurl. I agree on the DOF – just a bit more so the fern is in focus but the background stays blurred. But nice shot anyway.

Thanks Kevin! I’ll make a new attempt next weekend 🙂

Calee, our ferns are at about the same stage that yours are at. I love how prehistoric they look. One of my boys was afraid of bracken fronds when he was a toddler.

Yes! Now that you mention it- there IS a prehistoric look about them 🙂 Not sure why, but there is. Hugs Wendy!

Unfurling ferns are amazing, and this is a nice capture of one!

Thanks so much, Andelieya! One of the nicest thing in spring is seeing how plants and flowers develop, you can almost see the change day by day. 🙂 If I’m lucky enough to get some good shots, more fern pictures will follow soon.

That would be so nice, Calee! I took some fern shots myself not long ago at the Japanese Tea Garden at SF’s Golden Gate Park. I should post one for you if you like. I also painted a little postcard-size fern (though not a very good one) from a photo a friend of mine took in Hawaii. You can see it here: http://andelieya.wordpress.com/2012/11/13/fern/
May 13, 2013 at 5:36 PM
Yes, please post it! Nice painting. 😉
May 13, 2013 at 5:54 PM
Will do! And you do not have to comment. 😉

Such beauty in simplicity.
May 12, 2013 at 9:33 PM
Sometimes (or most times!), the most beautiful things are the simple things. 🙂 A wild flower, a duck, dew in grass,….
May 13, 2013 at 5:06 PM
The background is really nice too.
May 12, 2013 at 10:54 PM
Thanks Lyle! Actually the fern itself didn’t come out exactly the way I wanted it to, but the background did! I’m feeling positive, so I see the glass as half full 😉

I love ferns when they are at the fiddlehead stage and this is a beautiful shot.
May 13, 2013 at 12:05 AM
Thanks Mike, me too! I didn’t know it was called that, so thanks for the English lesson as well 🙂
May 13, 2013 at 5:18 PM
I love the way ferns come to life. You rally captured that amazing event.
May 13, 2013 at 3:36 AM
Thanks so much, Charlie! Very kind. 🙂
May 13, 2013 at 5:20 PM
Lovely shot – ferns are so beautiful just before unfolding
May 13, 2013 at 4:49 PM
Thanks Tina! I just learned that it’s called “fiddlehead” and it’s my favorite stage of the fern’s developments. 🙂

Now, that’s a curl! 😀
May 14, 2013 at 4:55 PM
Yay for curls 😉

Wonderful macro! Love the little curl!
May 14, 2013 at 9:05 PM
Thanks a lot, Susan! i love these curly ones too 🙂
May 15, 2013 at 5:39 PM
I love ferns, and green, and curves. 🙂

Me too!! All of the above 😀
