19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Unfurling Sago Palms on Amelia Island

These curly green strands are the new palm fronds of Sago palms in my neighborhood. Over the next two days as they started to extend, I grabbed my kit & tripod and took shots over a couple of hours. Some of the interplay of light and shade through these curls made for very interesting patterns.
