It’s complicated…

The Ferns used as a bed for the Iguana I showed the other day were rich with spores. No need to look at their underside to see the spores as most showed themselves to the world passing by. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
As I reviewed my images I realized that I captured a fly on one Fern’s leaf; unintentional but a welcome spot of interest in the composition. I knew spores are an asexual method of reproduction for Ferns. This morning while trying to determine the species for these Ferns, I learned the term, “alternation of generations”.  It turns out that Ferns are an example of nature’s complexity helping its almost forever survival. I never could determine for sure the exact species of this plant. If you are also unfamiliar with this terminology then click here for a definition. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
Simple, yet complex in design and reproduction abilities.  Nature continues to amaze and humble this photographer. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
