Silversword in Bloom
Atop the summit of Haleakala, our 10,000+ft volcano in the backyard, grows a plant named 'Silversword', its type endemic to that one summit. There are other types of Silversword around the globe, but none are the same...they're all endemic to their areas, as I've learned. (If someone here has info otherwise, feel free to share, I'm open to continued learning).
These plants live anywhere form 7 to about 90 years, and bloom only once in their lifetimes. When my wife and I hopped outta the car the other day to see one in bloom, you can bet I was quick on the draw to grab a camera and have at it. Shot these with a Sony a7Riii + GM 100-400.
