11SEP21: bracken fern

In years past the bracken fern has emerged, bright green and lush, in the late spring and is gone almost as soon as the summer heat hits. This year, despite sporatic rain, some of the fronds have hung on through the summer. This one is not giving up willingly. The detail in the brown portions of the frond is amazing.
