Photographer's Note

Trying out a macro lens that Santa left me...

I have also posted a different 'Bracken' image on my TL account today.

The word bracken is Norse in origin, and is related to the Swedish word brδken, meaning fern.

Bracken grows large triangular fronds and tends to form tall dense thickets.
The roots can travel a metre or more underground between fronds.
Individual fronds may grow up to 2.5 m long.
In cold environments bracken is deciduous. It requires well-drained soil, due to this it is generally found growing on the sides of hills.

The following link details some of the less desirable aspects of the Bracken (poisonous and cancer inducing).
