A very tall cactus
Small island with little cover.
I have no other pictures of that plant but will add a couple of pictures of others in the vicinity. They were growing on what is known as cactus hill on a small island (Palm Island) off Union in St Vincent and The Grenadines. Previously this island was known as Prune Island and has holiday homes and a resort here. Cactus hill is not, as far as I know, been planted as part of the grounds. I will bear in mind your comments for future pictures. Thank you for your guidance.
Do you have more pictures of the whole plant? Since we never know is it native or introduced, we need as much info as possible. In plants and trees we usually would like to see a close-up of the leaf (best upper- and underside), the tree itself, branches, maybe a picture with index of size or info about the size and the surrounding. Seems complex and much work, yes, but for a decent ID we need these infos. So, please, check your pictures and try to find more of this one. You can add them by editing your spotting and please, make a comment, so that we know you are read for an ID ;-)
