Southern Shield Fern Fiddlehead 3469

This green-on-green photograph shows the fiddlehead formed by the new leaf of a western shield fern, Thelypteris kunthii, that I found at the damp base of a little cliff in Great Hills Park on May 6.

To see the places in the southeastern United States where this lovely fern grows, you can check out the state-clickable map at the USDA.
