Default Convergence: Palm frond

Convergence in that all leaves converge into the centre; and
Convergence in that each separate leaf converges/ceases as an individual leaf to form the whole frond.

Hope this meets the challenge, somewhat.

Your first statement says it all but I'm not so sure about the second. Isn't the entire frond the leaf of the palm tree? Anyway, great selection for the challenge.

Thanks for the comment Cal. Hmm - wasn't very explicit in the second was I? What I should have said was that each separate leaf converges to a point where it ceases as an individual leaf to form the whole frond. Can I plead tiredness at the end of a long day at work?

Cheers
