Photographer's Note

This is a leaf of a young papaya tree of my backyard, covered with some rain drops.
When I was a child papaya trees reach high sizes and some years of life, ever covered with many fruits. In these last decades a disease caused by the mosaic virus destroy the young leaves and the plant get to survive for few time, producing small fruits with no quality.

Essa é uma folha de um jovem mamoeiro do meu quintal, coberto de gotas de chuva.
Quando eu era criança essas plantas alcançavam uma altura significativa, duravam muitos anos e ficavam cobertos de frutos. Contudo, nas últimas décadas uma doença, causada pelo vírus do mosaico do mamoeiro, chegou e começou a matar as plantas jovens, elas vivem pouco e criam frutos pequenos e de baixa qualidade.
