Macro Garden Series – 19

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I would usually post a fern frond in black and white, but the colours in this one were so lovely, I had to keep it in colour.

Shot at Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens.

Olympus OMD EM5, 60mm macro.

      Thank you! I hadn’t either. It was beautiful and kind of hidden away down a little path.

  6. Everything conspires to make me miss home. This superb photo of the rasp fern took me back to a gully below J’s house where we walked through a whole colony of them still wet from rain.
