Maidenhair Fern, Adiantum pedatum

Historically, Maidenhair Fern has been used in basketry and also for medicinal purposes.

This collection of ferns is growing on a moist rock face on the East Fork of the Lewis River in Southwest Washington.

The pictures, below, taken in early Spring (4/17/2011) shows what the fronds look like before they are fully unfurled.

Hi Doug
This Fern is one of my favorites.
You should definitely publish a book with these beautiful photos.
