This piece of palm fiber is 3.5 inches long by 1.375 inches wide. To me it's so cool that Mother Nature can produce plant fiber that is, in effect, woven, with some fibers running vertically and others horizontally. I'm not sure which of the many species of palm this fiber came from. I found it on the ground in our yard which has no palm trees. Coconut palms were very useful to oceanic peoples (for food, fiber, weaving, thatch, wood), and are found throughout the tropics.

We are so humbled by Mother Nature Katharine aren't we - we copy her in so many things but rarely if ever better her! Nice catch & well observed, Alan:-)

Yes, Alan, I am repeatedly amazed by the small miracles I see in nature. I think that's one of the blessings of being a photographer: it encourages one to really look and really see, and there is so much beauty to be seen. :-)

It almost has a pearlized look to it. Yes ... another of Nature's interesting creations. I'm glad you took this picture.
