There I was in the rain forest, and I was super frustrated. I could not get the pictures I was picturing. There were several reasons for this - the first being that I was stupid when I chose which lenses to bring. Then I could not get my old camera to do what I want. Add to this a lack of cooperation from both the weather and the local fauna. It was not the jungle photo walk I'd been hoping for. That said, I did get a few keepers, and this is one of them.
Nothing says tropical more than a pineapple. Well, I guess a pineapple with a little paper umbrella says tropical more than just a pineapple without one, but still. This pineapple is very tropical because it is still growing on what must be called a pineapple plant. Before I saw this, I figured they grew on trees like pinecones or apples, but nope.
