Coconut Palm Inflorescence

Photograph - Photograph
The Coconut Palm is a large palm, growing up to 100 feet tall and is quite beautiful.
This palm is in Hana, Maui. Using a 300mm lens I took this photo showing the fruit and inflorescence of the tree.
Botanically the coconut fruit is a drupe, not a true nut. On the same inflorescence, the coconut palm produces both the male and the female flowers and is believed to be largely cross-pollinated. Flowering occurs continuously.
