This is a photo of a wind-blown fiddlehead fern. Even with the flash on I couldn't quite freeze the motion, but I like the effect anyway. The name comes from the curled appearance of the top, which some people think looks like the scroll of a violin, which is sometimes called a fiddle.

It's not typical to see these so late in the season; they are normally a springtime plant. This one got a late start.


  1. In Sarawak, we eat quite a few kinds of fern. In New Zealand, the Maoris too eat some of our ferns. Do you eat your fiddlesticks?

    I have an old teacher who lives in Maryland. She is into ham radio. Do ham radio enthusiast call up each other?

    Thanks for visiting.

  2. I eat fiddleheads but I'm the only one in my family who does. They are very cool plants, beautiful to look at as well as tasty when young :-)
