I love this shot. There is something about a fern before it opens that is very appealing and you caught it so well in monochrome.

Thanks to all for the comments. Bengbeng, these are considered a delicacy in parts of the US. I ate some in Maine last year. They were quite good.

I once played the violin - and the title is very apt. Very elegant.

Interesting...and so elegant.

You must be very proud of this shot - I would be.

Wonderful detail in this unfolding fern, David. You have conveyed its delicacy very effectively.

So complex in detail, a little moist and creepy...

April? Jumping over the dreary months?

Beautifully framed shot. Ferns are such lovely subjects, and you've done this one justice.

Thanks for the link to the Flickr group! I've never participated in those, but now I'm inspired to check them out.
