This is a leftover from Ruby Creek, but I just like it. Royal Fern, Osmunda regalis, is easy to identify because the leaves don't look "ferny." It gets the name because it can grow very tall, and therefore looks regal. It really likes to have damp feet, so you'll have to go to wetlands to find it.
It's pretty common around here, and one of my favorites. I like the way the edges on this one are coloring for fall.
