Ferns are amongst the oldest species of plants (or any life) on the planet. This fact alone makes them worthy of a picture or two.
Thinking that there was nothing overly special about it, I had originally walked past this particular fern, and it wasn’t until I doubled back to this spot and then crouched down that I found the shot I was looking for.
I decided to focus on the single, curled up fern and then let the other fronds work as a kind of soft backdrop. I often like to focus on a single subject in situations like this, it helps to give the eye somewhere to start when viewing the shot.
