Spring Break 2023: Nephrolepis cordifolia

Nephrolepis cordifolia, the Fishbone fern (presumably);
Monroe county, Florida (13 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

I believe this is a Fishbone fern, but you should consider this identification tentative at best; I’m no fern expert. Regardless of the species, there’s something absolutely regal about a large fern crowning the base of a cypress. Airplants and ferns truly know how to scratch out a living in the cypress wetlands of South Florida.
