Photographer's Note

Inside Atlantic forest there is a native bamboo named taquaruçú, it lives around 30 years and at the end it produce its flowers and seeds and dies. The Indians who lived in my region used to count their age according with the times they saw the flowers of this plant during their lives.
Here we have some of these dead leaves, with some years yet and we can see how spiders used them now.

Dentro da Mata Atlântica há uma espécie de bamboo nativo chamado de taquaruçú. Esta planta vive cerca de 30 anos e antes de morrer florece e produz sementes. Os índios da minha região costumavam contar sua idade de acordo com o número de vezes que haviam presenciado esta florada. Aqui temos umas flores mortas da planta, já muito antigas, de vários anos, usadas pelas aranhas agora.
