Photo Essay: Sago Palms

Sago Palms grow in the desert. There are two in our yard. They have grown quite large and need to be moved as they are beginning to obstruct a doorway. Imagine my surprise when I returned in May to find this glorious flower. It actually looks like an enormous pine cone. Her BFF, close by, does not have this finery. Maybe it's her boyfriend. Just saying...

I like to take images and gradually pull in closer to get more and more detail. That is what I captured here.

This is fantastic. I love the way you've shown all 4, gradually getting closer and giving the context to the final shot.

Thanks for linking.
