The exquiste spiral of a Thai pumpkin vine. Across the Kingdom, the tips of the vine, along with the flowers, are steamed and eaten with chillie or boiled with other vegetables.

I am an Australian expat living in the hills of Mae Hong Son province Thailand (please visit cavelodge.com). I photograph almost everything, above and below ground.
It is like extending a curl of friendship.Beautiful shot!
Thanks Indrani. Great comment and analogy, but what happens next? Does it wraps itself around you and then slowly strangle?
I think the curl of friendship hypnotises you and then makes you fall over. It was either that or the Chang… hehehe. I love this shot. Beautiful crisp and clear!
You were looking at it upside down. Can you remember the Thai word for pumpkin? Was tempted to title it that but…there seems to be lots of rather conservative people on this site
