Dear Friends,
I had seen this spectacular sight in the forest on a small hill near Yana (North karnataka).  I could see the profuse flowering of some palm tree. I was too far and thus tried to capture this with max  possible zoom.. Do have a look at these enclosed snaps..

Habitat: Wild

Yes, It is a monocarpic palm (flowers only once in its life).
Like Ficus, It has been considered as a keystone species which provide
food for many insects, birds, bats and other animals.
It takes about 30-40 years for flowering.
