Asplenium nidus

Bird's-nest fern, shot in Chiang Mai, Thailand by Jim Newberry.

This of course is an Asplenium nidus  (or for you philistines, a “Bird’s-eye fern”), which I found on a walk in beautiful Chiang Mai, Thailand.

 

OK, I had no idea what kind of plant this was, but thanks to Facebook I had it identified in no time. So in addition to being a time-sucking, soul-crushing, privacy-invading, seemingly unavoidable stain on humanity, the social media site can actually, occasionally, be useful. Tip of the “like” thumb to David Broadfoot.
