Fish Tail Palm flowers

Caryota mitis or Fishtail Palm. They fruit as they grow, the bunches of fruits dangling in bunches close to the trunk. Is not often to see the flowers and I have seen them only a few times over the years of looking out for them whenever I see the Fish tail palm. At the Hortpark I was rewarded at last. Even then this bunch of flowers was hidden behind the leaves and given the poor lighting I had to hold my breath with the taking of each photo and pretend that the camera and I were part of a rock formation.
