Caption: Dryopteris fern. Autumn colours in a clump of the Male Fern, Dryopteris filix-mas, next to a woodland stream. This is the most common British fern, and is found in shady places such as damp woodland or under hedgerows. Magical properties were attributed to the plant in folklore, such as the power of its spores to make the carrier invisible. The roots of the fern were dug up on St John's Eve, carved into the shape of a hand and baked to make a charm to ward off witches and evil spirits. Photographed in Cumbria, UK.
