Photographer's Note

In the heart of the small island of Praslin, the Valléee de Mai-reserve, listed on the Unesco World Heritage List, has the vestiges of a natural palm forest preserved in almost its original state.
The famous coco de mer, from a palm-tree once believed to grow in the depths of the sea, is the largest seed in the plant kingdom.
Wonderful place to be, sort of like an enchanted forest!
