Day 9 - From Down Low. My husband, daughter and I went for a drive through the Oil palm plantation this morning after breakfast. When I saw a really tall Palm Oil tree, I told my husband to stop. I stood under the tree and here's what I came up with. Well, I did not reckon the glaring sun from above. I also wonder why there are so many secondary plants along the trunk of these oil palm. Could be they live symbiotically. I doubt they are parasitic plants.
