Photographer's Note

In the rainforest of the Pacific Northwest you can see lush vegetation of all types. This is a tree fern, which grows not on the ground, but on trees. I've tried to photograph this plant on many occasions, but I never got the shot I was looking for - the one that showed the delicate beauty of the leaves as they catch a ray of light from above. Finally, I think I got one, and it even shows a mossy background, which is where it throws it's roots.

Shot from a tripod at 1/3 second (many tries to get one with absolutely no wind to move the leaves). I did't use a macro lens, but instead shot with my regular lens at the closest focussing distance.
