This close-up shot is of a yucca plant that was growing in the Grand Canyon. The fibers on the outside of the leaf have started to peel and curl on themselves. The yucca plant is a staple of the Southwest and generally grows in warm dry climates. The fibers from the yucca were used prehistorically to produce rope, cordage, woven sandals and many other tools.

I read it really fast and I thought it said "peeing" However, after closer inspection I realized it said peeLing and I too think this is very creative. Nice shot!
