Heavy with Rain
I like the reddy brown against the rich green. Nice shot Janice. Hasn't the weather been horrible. Let's hope it is better for us on Tuesday. Your note is very interesting too. Thanks.
Sorry to hear the news about bad weather Janice. Today in Poland sunny and about 25C. I'll take my cam and go to meadow soon.
This is amazing picture Janice. POV and composition are great - it remainds me some kind of flying bird with brown head and green wings. Great eye :-)
Nice shot Janice,
Nice to see the English have taken our weather with them for the rugby tour!!
The ferns do look very nice when wet, really well detailed and good colours. Well composed and good DOF.
Thanks for posting, I hope the weather clears up for you.

Jancie, I like the "wet" look here as it has altered the color to the deep reddish brown as you say. A unique twist in your series of fern shots..Well done and TFS!

Never thought of mixing dead and live leaves in the same composition. It works obviously very well. Ferns are already beautiful in terms of colors and textures, but, here, you add another artistic and intimate touch to it. Loaded with rain, with shiny reflections is beautiful, Janice.
This is magnificent capture.Red and green colors are amazing.I liked this work very much.Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful picture, as usual, Jancie! Do you know how many kinds of fern there are in NZ? Is it more common with ferns in NZ than on other places in the world? I love ferns, too, they are fascinating. But we do not have so many kinds in Sweden.

Excellent contrasts of red and green, in-focus and out-of-focus. I'd have cropped it a little on both sides, left more than right; but that's being really picky!
