Photographer's Note

Araucaria angustifolia is the tree that symbolizing my state, Paraná, southern Brazil. Its commom name is "Pinheiro-do-Paraná". There are females or males trees separatedly. The seeds, called "pinhão" were important to the indians nutrition and still today it is very appreciated (I love it!) delicacy.
Most of the araucarias were planted by the birds "gralha azul", the symbol bird of my state. These birds also love to eat the seeds and they use to hide some, putting it inside the ground and covering it with soil.
I wrote about the lonely araucaria, but you should be thinking about the colours on the ground, from the oat plantation.
Regards,
Zeca
