Strange male inflorescence of a natural palm. Photograph taken near the Lodge Tundaloma, about 15 kilometers from the town of San Lorenzo (border with Colombia).

This inflorescence is about 2.5 meters long. In the workshop, you can view the entire palm and appreciate the scale and size of this curiosity of nature.

The subject is under sub-timber forest: the brightness is relatively low. Therefore I determined an aperture of f / 3.2, to have enough light. Despite this, the speed of shooting is only 1 / 60 th. The result is a blur which is not the best. But basically for me, this was to show this curiosity from the wild nature.

Shot from 2008/06/14.

Hola philippe

Interesante imagen y explicación, buen contraste, realmente parece una cuerda gruesa,

Muy buena y no vista.

Bonjour Philippe,
Intéressante publication mais qui manque effectivement de profondeur de champ ; merci pour le partage.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

bonjour Philippe
