It’s a nice asparagus fern. Actually the subject here is the black background. Using a low ISO and SS I adjusted F Stop until everything was black then reversed until branch came into view. Sunlight was coming in at just the right angle which made it easy. I’ve heard you can use flash lighting and synch speed settings to achieve black backgrounds on many subjects. Only way to find out is to try.
