Glassy fern fronds

...I missed having this challenge ready for the last Photo Art Friday at Pixel Dust Photo Art.  It was to be connected to the number 3.

What a wonderful gift Carole. Isn't it fun that we can photograph our gifts and then make a little piece of art from it?!

I've been quite absent too - internet connection problems.

Glad you shared your link this way!

These are exquisite! I love their colors and the shape of the just opening fern frond! Gorgeous!
Hope you have a great week,

I've always thought that ferns and particularly the opening fronds were exquisite. Thank you for showing me even more beauty than I'd imagined!

Oh these are wonderful. I love them in their natural state and then your texture just made them into a wonderful Art Piece as well. Nicely done.

Those are beautiful!! I prefer it with the natural colours, but the blue is interesting!
