Through the Green

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.

So This is Where Pineapples Come From

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.

Do you know what this plant is? I'll give you a hint: it grows in Costa Rica, in the Arenal area. Now do you know? If so, please let know because I have no idea and am too lazy to look it up.
