20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This staghorn fern was displayed outdoors in the Chicago Botanic Garden this summer. I was visiting and loved the color and texture of the base of the plant. I love the textures nature creates and hope to encourage others to appreciate and preserve our natural world.
