morning palm

Here is a California fan palm in the morning light.  As the tree grows higher, the lower fronds droop and form a skirt around the trunk as they dry, helping to protect the plant from moisture loss and insect predators.

The desert air is crisp and clear.

THis is nice. Somehow the cloud shapes accent the palm tree just right.
