16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Resurrection Fern on a fallen Oak tree

During extremely long and heavy storms, a 100-year-old oak tree fell behind my house. Prior to cutting the tree up for wood, I took note of all the life that had taken up residence on the tree, including the resurrection fern seen in the photo.
