Bromeliad – rises in an aerial or ground habitat, this one grew up on the ground; the succulent leaves serves to store water for use in the rainless periods. This cup of leaves act as a wastebasket to catch water, leaves or other falling debris; the subsequent decomposition produces hummus that are absorbed as nutrient; also serves as habitat of larvae of mosquitos and other insects. The roots are used only as fixing points.

Hélcio, gosto deste macro. Tons bonitos e um belo efeito. Ótima idéia.
Gostei dessa macro. O detalhe da água no interior ficou ótimo. Sou novo aqui, mas pretendo mostrar meus trabalhos.
Beautiful shot! So much variety in color, and I really love the water in the middle -- it adds depth, contrast, and even more color. Because the entire shot is filled with the plant, the way the plant is shaped it feels like it's drawing and pulling me into it. So nice!
