Despite the eerie effect of interstellar high-speed flying, this is an Australian native plant known as a Yakka bush.
Shot at waist level, staring into a perfectly spherical yakka, this can hurt the eyes: Walking into these long thin green blades would do severe retina damage.
Probably the same effect as “going to light-speed” into the sun.
Known as Xanthorrhoea priessii, the Yakka plant is a grass-tree, also spelled yacka. To engage in Hard Yakka is a common phrase in the Australian lexicon. One of Australia’s most well-known brands of work clothing is entitled Hard Yakka.
