this may be a wee bit dark, but i found these two fronds in the shade of a tree totally captivating… there was something quite magical and primordial about them… i even went back the following day to try to get a couple more shots…

taken in a friend’s garden. he has an awesome garden!

    stunning image Iris, and I don’t think its too dark at all, it really adds something to the story – the primordial emergence!

  • thanks so much, suellen! that’s exactly what attracted me to this wee bit of magic in nature!
