Exotic Fiddlehead

fernheadFriends, this huge fern is gently unfolding within the tropical environment of Como Conservatory,  Ferns are a world of green, and this pinkish head will soon turn green.  If you look closely you can see structure that looks like feather structure, below is a macro of this substructure.  I am always amazed by the intricate macro structures, probably why I was an electron microscopist (cell biology and structures) in an earlier life, til Tomorrow MJ
