Giant Elephant Leaves

Elephant ears or Colocasia esculenta grow wild all over Lamma. Some of the food shops use the leaves to line baskets.
Apparently the scarab beetle is closely involved with the pollination of these plants crawling over the flowers and distributing the pollen to its male, female and this plant also has a spare parts. The scarab beetles are often seen at this time of year sleepily crawling across the paths. Now I know why.
