Great shot and fascinating description. Kiawe is I think what they call huarango or algarrobo in South America and is getting rare in some areas due to land clearance, cutting for firewood and similar. Slightly ironic it is considered a pest in areas such as Hawaii where it has been introduced

Heidi Fickinger replied:

That is so interesting James. We have another creature that made it's way here that is in the same position - the coquis frog. They were a stow-away in plants that came in on a Wallmart shipment that was not fully inspected and have spead like wildfire on the Big Island. They are originally from Puerto Rico and are now considered threatened there due to habitat destruction.

In addition to the banner, I am adding this more permanent recognition of its FEATURE on the homepage of A TREE OR TREES IN BLACK AND WHITE. I try mightily to feature only images that would be at home in a juried competition. No doubt about this image fitting that bill. Do consider entry in a juried exhibition. CONGRATULATIONS!
