Ferny Friends

Here's another green pal of mine. The Deer Fern, or <i> Blechnum Spicant</i>.  It wasn't until I drew it that it sank in what the guidebooks say about it; only some of the fronds hold the spores, not all of them. So here's me, drawing the fronds thinking, "Well, funny, there are no spores on the underneath of this frond. How odd for a fern."   (Insert noise of cattleprod here).
Sometimes you just don't know something until you draw it. Scratch that, most times....no possibly ALL of the time. You don't see until you draw. Well, for me anyway.
