"Fishbone" by sabine

"Fishbone"

This is a close-up of a fisbone or herringbone fern. Its leaf is covered in spores. A real nuisance (and considered a weed) in the garden but once again a fascinating plant.
I'm guessing it is a fern but it is incredibly abstract

@peterdegraaff you're absolutely right Peter :). In the meantime I've added a description to the photo. I liked it because it made me think of tentacles or some other underwater creature. Funny how taking the colour out of a pic can make it look so alien.

It looks organic - part of a plant? An amazing macro, whatever it is!

very cool. It does indeed look kind of like tentacles or something. pulling the color made a huge difference.

@janturnbull @ianwm54 @jdr4690 @svarri thank you. Focus would have been a bit better I suppose if I would have used a proper macro lens and a tripod but I only had my standard lens (28-80mm) at hand.

@olivetreeann thank you Ann. And thanks for the tag-tip too. I always forget about these things.

Wow. You have a good eye for the details. The second row of "tentacles" in the background adds to the image.

Great close up! This fern plant would not be a nuisance in my yard as I have a difficult time growing ferns.
April 26th, 2012  
Oh even I can grow these. They spring up everywhere. Although I'm not so sure I could photograph them as well as you have. Nicely done
