Fern

Costa Rica is known for its biodiversity. The country's President, Nobel Peace Prize winner Oscar Arias, has declared the country's commitment to become the world's first carbon-neutral nation, a goal slated for the 2020's.

The fern in this photo is a primitive ancestor to the tree, developing 400 million years ago. This picture was taken in Tamarindo on the lush grounds of the Cala Luna Resort in Langosta.

Interesting shot!
I've enjoyed comparing the differences and similarities with our ferns. I look forward to see more of Costa Rica. Thanks for sharing!
