Fern Hunting

The pic looks more dramatic than it was. I'm sure ferns are not quite so scarce as this but it's the first time I've noticed one and it was growing in the rock at the bottom of the photograph.

As it turned out it was the southern fern or polypodium cambricum, quite common throughout the mediterranean or so my reference book says.
