In my travel I have come across palm trees like these ones in the picture above.
Also I have come across palm trees like this type found below:

However, last month I happened to look up at a palm tree waving its branches right in front of this tourist venue when I noticed this strange look that I was not accustomed to. It has leaves that pointed in so many different directions and in a four-pointed fuzzy fashion. The palm tree I saw looked something like this:

As I researched to find out what type of palm tree this was, I found out that the beautiful palm tree I saw – is called the Wodyetia bifurcata as seen in the link below, Courtesy:http://www.palmantics.com/palms/description_wodyetia_bifurcata/
The author of this website even has an impressive palm tree guide at: http://www.palmantics.com/palms/palm_pics.php
Immediately my mind thought of where I might have seen something like this before and it clicked that – yes! there is an animal that I know which has the same sort of fuzzy look on its body. Here is a picture of the animal I compared to the palm tree to in my mind. It was a dog known as the American Eskimo dog.
My whole experience was so enriching and invigorating and caused me to remember that I live in a world of so many different varieties and species of plants, birds, fishes, ants, butterflies – soooooooooooooo much that I cannot continue or begin to finish this list of living things and created beauties that just help me remember the greatness and matchless creative power of God!
