Canon 450D (Canon lens 18-55mm)
Taken in Albany, Western Australia.
Possibly the most ancient living banksia species in the SW of WA – fossilised cones have been dated as 18 million years old. Banksia attenuata is long lived – up to 300 years old. It can also hold viable seed in its cones for many years – up to 12 years has been recorded.
