Nguna Island - Fern

On our last full day in Nguna, the men insisted that we should walk to the top of the hill at whose base the village sits. The walk took us through a heavily forested area interspersed with small plots on which taro, yam, popo (papaya) and a wide variety of other 'island food' were grown. This fern is gathered and used as food, much as fiddleheads are in Canada.
