Fern's Reflection

Thanks to the rainy day, I see reflection in the sky.

Though not a crystal clear piece of mirror, I can see the reflected images of fern leaves.

This is another casted image that shows how mighty the mysterious fern leaf is; from a single crozier that unfurls into multiple fronds that in turn release all the lives that went into hibernation centuries ago.

These ferns grow in abundance at a higher altitude, and every one of them get reflected. I wonder whether anyone of them is called Narcissus? Has this Narcissus seen its reflection for the first time?

On the other way, if Li Bai, one of the greatest Tang Dynasty Poets, managed to see the reflection of moon in the sky, he might not then opt to dive into the river in order to dredge it up.

If you happen to hike at Cerok Tokun, you have to exert yourself and go further up until you see my favorite ferns. Spend some times there, take a look at them, you will be inspired, and thus welcome to the gaga club.

These are truly beautiful macros of the fern. I think I would enjoy hiking Cerok Tokun to see your favorite ferns. But until I can do that I'll just enjoy your great photos.

excellent shots. i fell in love with your fern the first time i came here and then the thoughts you put together in each post inspired me a lot too. Your reflections on life and its mysteries are profound and thought-provoking sometimes. And yet the added humor made everything light.

Those are the neatest ferns. We don't have ones that look just like that, though

Cerok Tokun is a fairy forest of ferns; that's sound good.

You can always hike with me virtually. Together we'll explore the beauty of Cerok Tokun.

Cerok Tokun is a living library, I try to read as much as possible.

Nice photos of such natural beauties.

Bill said...

You have really captured the delicate nature of ferns in these photos. Watching leaves unfold is an amazing adventure. Reminds me of Spring! Wonderful post.

Yes..we have this in common- oh but I really enjoy your captures here! I'm wondering what the elevation is?
On the island, the ferns here do grow up to a higher elevation. I'm down by the ocean and there are many as well as moss and what not! So magical- thanks for your journey- I look forward to it!

These curled up ferns are quite captivating, especially when there's a fibril or two or beads of dew to adorn them.
