Photographer's Note

There was a big stairs made of timber to reach the deeper part of the park, where it was the creek I showed you before. The creek and the narrow gorge gave and humidity to the area and big trees could to grow and in the top of one of them I found this tree-creeper named Tail of Macaw (Norantea guianensis), native from Cerrado. It can grow as a tree or as a tree-creeper using another tree to reach the light. Curiously the science name of this plant has a reference to Guyana and I found other native plants of Brazilian savana with this same name, meaning it was described for science first time there and you can find the same plant there too.

Para alcançar o córrego que eu mostrei antes era necessário usar uma longa escadaria de madeira. O córrego era cercado de altos paredões de rocha e havia umidade ali e isso permitia que as árvores crescessem bem alto, no topo de uma delas eu encontrei essa trepadeira chamada de "rabo de arara" cujo nome científico é Norantea guianensis. Ela pode viver no topo das árvores ou crescer como uma árvore a partir do solo. Curiosamente seu nome científico tem uma referência à Guiana, provavelmente a planta foi descrita pela primeira vez lá e também deve ser encontrada naquela região.
