Photographer's Note

While we were staying in Tortuguero Tropical Forest, our lodge in the middle of the forest by the canal, was called "Pachira Lodge".
So, for our first outing on the boat, our lovely guide showed us where the hotel took its name from. She asked the driver to go to the plant "pachira" (WS2), picked the stem that looks like a thin banana, and promised some magic fireworks, which happened to everyone's delight, when she opened the pod !
PACHIRA AQUATICA is native to Central and South America,; where it grows in wetlands.
See the fruit in WS1.
In WS 3, on Gildasjan's advice, I have cropped the right of the image, which definitely makes for a better composition. I am sorry I hadn't thought about it, but I am thankful to Gildas.
