Athyrium filix-femina gametophytes with sporophytes

Athyrium filix-femina  Lady Fern  - Gametophytes with young sporophytes

This shot shows part the cluster of gametophytes (some with young sporophytes) on the moist soil.  The gametophytes have, of course, developed from the spores produced on the fronds of an adult sporophyte somewhere (see here).  If you look closely here you can see a great number of gametophytes at every stage of development, some extremely small.
