A fern grew of its own accord several years ago in a spot that's I wouldn't have chosen for it. That corner of the garden is now due for tidying up, so should the fern stay or go? A random glance yesterday suggested opportunities for exploring shape, form and repetition. Here are some of the results with the K3 + Irix 105mm macro. The fern is going to stay .

Thoughts, comments welcome as usual.

Definitely keep the fern. They give great photo opportunities of fronds unfurling in the spring and then leaf shapes later on. We had a number of ferns under trees but when the trees were cut down and a new fence erected they never regrew, always regretted not potting some up to make sure they could be replanted.

I like this selection Steve - the predominance of vibrant green is set off nicely with the hints of brown, plus they are not just close up "record" shots but worthy images in themselves - love the use of limited DOF in no.1 and no.5 in particular.

Great set - no 3 is my fav. with the diagonal in-focus line of the fern

Thanks folks, glad you liked them. The fern is definitely going to stay. A couple of different types are also growing elsewhere in the garden. Perhaps it's time to have a close look at them, too...

I really like the last one. Almost embossed and reminiscent of carboniferous fossils.
