[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends,

The Canary Dragon Tree (Dracaena draco L.) is an endemic species in Macaronesia (the islands of Canaries, Azores, Madeira and Cape Verde), with a very small, isolated population in Morocco also. It's also the plant symbol of another Canary island, Tenerife.

I photographed the tree (and a dove just being there) in Jardin Botanico Viera y Clavijo, one of the most attractive botanic gardens I've ever seen.

Photo: made in manual exposure mode, with f/8, ISO 80 and 1/400 sec. No PP except for re-sizing and re-sharpening.

Thanks for looking.
