14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tropical Plant

I found this plant in the Philippines on an island called Sabtang, an island located in the northernmost regions known as the barrier islands: Batanes. I was exploring, and found a plant that looked much like a pineapple, and could not decipher what it was.
