|Yes, it is a fern.|
A fern, or pteridophyte, is any one of a group of some twenty thousand species of plants classified in the Division Pteridophyta, formerly known as Filicophyta. A fern is defined as a vascular plant that does not produce seeds, but reproduces by spores to initiate an alternation of generations. New sporophyte fronds typically arise by circinate vernation (that is, "leaf" formation by unrolling).

Hi Barbara this does look interesting. But what plant is it please? It looks like a new frond from a ferm opening. Very well shown too. Very good up-close shot with a great background. Thanks for sharing.
And Welcome to TN...
A nice and interesting photo of an emerging fern but as Jancie has said disappointingly no note.
Nice shot, very nice forms. The BG is a bit OE but doesn't disturb much.
Welcome to TrekNature Barbara.
Nice detail in this fern frond.
As the others said,a note would be useful.
A great first photo though (oops...second photo).
Look forward to seeing more.
Thanks for posting this.

I like the title, it made me go and have a closer look. It does lok lie a well fed Popeye.
Nice crisp details.
OOF BG works very well.
