Photographer's Note

This is a bromeliad native of atlantic forest, most of bromeliads live in the top of the trees and get water from the rain that is kept inside their leaves. Small animals take waters up there and find protection inside them. Here we have an exemple, a small frog is sleeping inside it, there is water in the botton of these leaves and the leaves protect the animal.

Esta é uma bromélia nativa da mata atlântica. A maior parte das bromélias vive no topo das árvores, obtendo água da chuva e a conservando entre suas folhas como um depósito de água que serve aos pequenos animais e até lhes dá abrigo. Temos aqui um exemplo, vemos uma perereca dormindo entre as folhas de uma bromélia nativa, ao fundo existe água e as folhas protegem o animal.
