|This close-up image reminds me of a seafood wrap sold at a local diner.|
In reality, these are the curled tips (fronds) of the sword fern which are growing quickly at this time of year. They thrive in acidic soils of the pine forests.
This image was captured using a macro lens attachment and some trial-and-error on my part. Without using a tripod (too difficult to get close to many plants) I had to get close, have a steady hand, attempt the best aperture, and hope the sun didn't suddenly place glare on the surfaces.

Nice shot. Very artistic. The composition with the lined spirals look great.
I think a tripod would help you out a lot shooting a photo like this. It will allow you to use a longer exposure at ISO 100 to get a very detailed and crisp photo.

great macro shot.
This is nice but lacks a bit of focus on the interesting part of the fern. This could also use some noise removal. TFS
i would also crop the bright bit at the bottom. but overall it's a great composition!
