Ferns, Then & Now

Spring comes on quickly in these parts and if you don't pay attention, it will slip right past you. Last year I missed the opportunity to photograph fiddlehead ferns, it seemed as though I blinked and suddenly they were three feet tall. This year I kept a closer eye on the forest floor and captured a few shots of the ferns in their fiddlehead stage. Yesterday I went back to take a look at them and this is how much they've grown in just three weeks!
