Two favorite photos from our chronicle of polypodium californicum ‘Sarah Lyman’, California polypody.
I like this crop of from the polypody photo of July 1 for its abstract view of the dying fern fronds being drained of their color.
And the rebirth in early September, emerging from the mulch of chopped-up fronds and oak leaves. The center stalk unfurls and then the side leaves also unfurl. The exposure is .6 seconds at f/22, to maximize depth of field.
