[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Planta peremne que crece en semisombra y sitios resguardados. Planta dióica con aspecto de palmera. Crecimiento lento, de aprox. un metro cada 100 años.Hojas pinnadas muy grandes y consistencia como de plástico. Flores unisexuales con pies masculinos y femeninos. Cuando germina el grano de polen produce los espermatozoides más grandes de todos los seres vivos, de casi 1/3 de mm. y visibles a simple vista.Pueden llegar a tardar seis meses en fecundar a la ovocélula.
Es un auténtico fósil viviente

Hi Ignasi,
Nice shot of the this plant!
Here in Venezuela it's name is Ragu Palm, althought it is not a true Palm, but very similar.
It's very interesting the way new grows form like a whirl at the center.
I like the tight crop you did to build this composition.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
JM

Hello Ignasi!
Very simple composition but the effect is really interesting. You succesfuly kept the good quality details here. Moreover, thanks to well saturated colours with picture has a very nice "character".
Anyway, it would be nice to find here any note, with eg. information about size of this species, and also its name :)
Greetings from Poland,
Radomir

Hola Ignasi,
Com ja et comenten la composició es simple pero molt acertada, és una planta realment molt primitiva, crec recordar que hi ha algun exemplar a la plaça Catalunya a Barcelona.
Salutacions cordials.

Hola Ignasi,
Excelente foto, me encanta como has captado la simetría radial que posee esa planta. La nitidez es espectacular, la luz suave es estupenda, hace que no sobreexponga el centro.
Saludos
Hernán
