Familial fern.

Lady fern, Athyrium filix-femina.

Or is it a grown-up caterpillar intervening as child caterpillars tussle?

It's Spring Break and the kids are at home. I think this fern is us.

First, I love the photo...nothing like a fern slowly stretching from a long nap! Second, I love your comparison to you and your kids. Precious!

Kimberly, Thank you!

I love it too! What a great photo and comment; caterpillars!... a super visual. We'll never see fiddleheads the same again. Thanks, Hugh.

Wow, I can really see the caterpillars! Looks like my kids, too, except they would be pushing each other in front of the computer. :-)
