The ferns are ancient plants, the diet of dinosaurs. They don’t exactly have seeds but spores. It was unusual to come across this individual plant which had a rare specialised structure grown just for carrying spores. The spore capsules were so dense along the stalk that it was forced to bend into a pattern of circles and whorls. In my treatment, I retained the natural bronze colour of the spores which contrasted so well against the green rainforest background.
