To me no other tree symbolizes southern Florida like the Coconut Palm. The palm grows throughout the tropics. The entire tree is used by various cultures for food, timber, thatching, etc.
Recently, the early morning sun was reflecting from the canal on to a small cluster of coconuts. The quality of the lighting was perfect and I was able to take the above image along with several others. A curious “bushy-tailed tree rat” was watching me photograph the nuts.
