Doing the ‘Uncurl’

Today’s post features a woodland fern as it begins it’s spring awakening, captured during my recent photo outing at Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park, in the Missouri Ozarks.

Hiking the woodland glade trail, looking for wildflowers, I came upon a small patch of ferns that were starting to uncurl and come to life. Here is a macro photograph I captured:
