Fantastic close-up...I can feel the texture!

A classical Calhoun! :-) Great photo, Ryan! Y*! Beautiful soft colours on the background, a nice contrast to the sharp pointed shape of the tips.

Greetings, May

Thank you May! I didn't know that some palm leaves have a forked tip. Not surprising, I guess, since the forked part is tiny, just at the very end of the rather long wide leaves. But when I saw it, I knew I must keep it!

Great macro. From the thumbnail, I thought it was a pair of skis.

Greetings, Leo

Thank you Leo. It is just the tip of the palm leaf, where there is a tiny split. It does look like skis.
