Thanks for the nice comments - especially the lighting since I know you're a lighting expert. I don't think they are fiddleheads although I'm no fern expert. I believe that fiddleheads aren't fuzzy like that. Fiddleheads are a popular food item (although I've never had them myself) and the photos I've seen of them don't have any fuzz. I'll see if they are labeled next time I go.
