Wow, this is beautiful. I've never such tree.
I've never seen anything like this before JM...interesting! Cool shot too!
Perfeita foto!Na primeira olhada rápida eu pensei que fosse uma foto ( de cima ) de alguma alegoria do Carnaval que passou! Como se fossem plumas !Acho que hoje acordei com grande imaginação!:-)Linda foto, realmente perfeita!Léia
What a strange plant. I enjoyed looking up cycad (new to me). Thanks for the gift of a cycad.
It's certainly colorful!
I don't think I've ever seen one either. It's really pretty!
You have educated some of us with your photo! I, too, looked up cycad and, of course, checked multiple photos. It is indeen an unusual and prolific plant/tree.
Fascinating! And quite creepy too, especially when enlarged. Yup, I can easily imagine it in a Jurassic forest!
The jurassic period! Wow!Enjoyed to see Léia comment in your common language here! (I think I understood...!... and as she says: Your photo is beautiful and really perfect!)
I check on the net and there is a map showing the countries where the plant grow , but they forget Portugal ;)
superbe et étrange cette fleur, un vrai bouquet. superb and strange this flower, a true bunch.
Strange and beautiful.
Babzy, cycads are not endemic to Portugal, the maps on the net show where they grow in the wild.
Great photo, JM ... looks like something exploding out of the netherworld!
This almost looks like an exotic salad! Is it lunch time yet?
I thought it was some sort of exotic salad!
Wow! This is tremendous. You don't see these in my neck of the woods. I love the explosiveness of it.
It looks weird, but beautiful at the same time.
What a fantastic shot!!! Really pops! :)
Wow, that plant is really quite bonkers! Great photo.
I love the way you close in on this and crop it. You really make us look at it. Well done.
I was very surprised the first time i saw the inside of those trees!
I enlarged this one to get a better look at the center. There is some kind of seed pod or fruit mixed in there. This is a great picture.
this is one of the reason why i really like a tropical country like ours. we dont experience winter though.
Great composition. Never saw such a beautiful image.
It is a nother exotic world to me. The clors alone are gorgeous.
A very interesting shot. I have not got around to photographing the cycads in my garden from that angle. I might give it a go one day ... but I am struggling with trying to get a decent shot of the tree ferns first.
Aw! I didn't know this fact. Thanks :)My First ComputerBirdhouses, Birdfeeders, Birdbath
I first saw this plant when I visited Florida and it had the lovely bloom in the center. I made the mistake of trying to smell it and it stabbed my nose. In spite of that I like the plant very much.Unfortunately there is a disease or virus attacking this plant in Florida and most of them are dead or dying. I've lost the two I've had for years. Sad when you think of how long they have survived.
