Description: 
A rather dense portion of forest, three smaller trees in fore. The forest here is never open - most open along the small streams which flow through here and there - water looks nice and clear and there are no fern lined banks. On the trunks the broad entire frond fern and the shield or staghorn fern are abundant, but I could not find the former in fruit or the latter in reach. Orchids are not especially abundant.
