Baby ferns, I call them. One of my favourite things to photograph on rainforest walks are ferns in that stage before they become their fully fledged selves. I get much pleasure out of their delicate little fractal curled-ness. And just before they flare out into the bright green-fingered leaves as we know them, they look like flying butterflies with yellow edged wings.
These pictures were taken on the walks we did at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
