Monochrome Monday

Hart’s-tongue Fern with hoarfrost.

Monochrome Monday could have been a Throwback Thursday as it’s a shot from way back in my archives. Taken in Cheshire, England in the early 1980s when I used to keep a camera loaded with black and white film in my bag.

The upper leaf of this Hart’s-tongue Fern is lying upside down. It’s showing the sori that produce the spores used for reproduction.

It’s known as Hart’s-tongue Fern because the shape of the leaves resembles the tongue of a Hart, a male Red Deer.

Thanks Susan. I was planning on using the shot for either a Monochrome Monday or a Throwback Thursday but your recent post moved it up the schedule.
