Motto: so apparently took >1k pics
on latest harem outing.
wtf am i gonna do ;/

I suppose that's yet another straight question rendered rhetorical by significant expenditure of labour. It occurs to me it could be a fine measure of a society, this -- the count of questions rendered rhetorical coupled with the means whereby they were so rendered.

Incidentally... do you recall the celebrated community of Division ?

Good ; but none of this has anything to do with it. Instead, I give you...

lapaz-1

Above : curve. Pentru ca sunteti.

Below : coffee plantation.

lapaz-2

lapaz-3

Above : speedster.

Below : trail.

How do you like the Trilema Wordrarium ?

lapaz-4

lapaz-5

Above : rooves.

Below : below.

lapaz-6

lapaz-7

Above : colibri.

Below : photograph taken through the glorious hole of a telescope. It's the next best thing to being a sniper, this, you realise. Shooting through the telescope!

lapaz-8

lapaz-9

Above : vase.

Below : petals.

Warning : Both above and below items are displayed in arrangements intended for illustrative purposes only. Your own delivered vase/petals may differ.

lapaz-10

lapaz-11

Above : butter, with flies.

Below : bugs, packaged separately.

Warning : Both above and below descriptions include references that are not necessarily transparent.

lapaz-12

lapaz-13

Above : bugs

Below : butterflies.

You see what I did there.

lapaz-14

lapaz-15

Above : bugs.

Below : bird.

Ha-HA!

Above : end of bird section.

Below : beginning of new bird section.

Did you miss the commentary ?

lapaz-28

lapaz-29

lapaz-30

Above : stair.

Below : morel.

No, seriously.

lapaz-31

Below : waterfall with birdfeeder in focus.

Warning : differences are never going to be the same.

lapaz-33

lapaz-34

lapaz-35

lapaz-36

Above : lions. Waterfall included.

Below : lions. Waterfall excluded.

Waterfal makes a lot of differential!

lapaz-37

lapaz-38

lapaz-39

Above : the end of the big cat section.

Below : the beginning of the medium cat section.

lapaz-81

lapaz-82

Above : end of the merely dead section.

Below : beginning of the deadly yet live section.

lapaz-83

lapaz-84

lapaz-85

Above : counterintuitively perhaps, the deadly but live section includes plants. There's something caught in there, you realise, and it ain't never coming back out again (unless you count coming out as a bud a proper metamorphosis endpoint for a bug's lifecycle).

Below : dead deadly.

lapaz-86

lapaz-87

lapaz-88

Above : my meagre faculties for classification being well overwhelmed.

Below : yours, also.

lapaz-89

lapaz-90

lapaz-91

Above : very large ash-white butterfly.

Below : very large carmine-red butterfly.

Warning : they have more. Even some butterflies with transparent windows on the wings, exactly reminiscent of an EEPROM.

lapaz-92

lapaz-93

lapaz-94

lapaz-95

Above : time to close the critter section.

Below : time to open the parrot section.

Warning : you thought I was kidding with not being even remotely done, did you.

lapaz-96

lapaz-97

lapaz-98

Below : very attentive yet surprised duck.

lapaz-108

lapaz-109

lapaz-128

Warning : No, seriously.

lapaz-133

lapaz-134

lapaz-135

Above : outside shots from this re-enaction of an early 1900s upper-middleclass costa-rican home. It's built out of what they call here "cypress", specifically a varietal of European yellow pine that was imported in the 1600s and utterly took over the mountains. It's so much better wood than anything the local overgrown grasses can provide, the apellation's not even misplaced.

Below : ancient bug.

Warning : no, we're not quite done just yet.

lapaz-136

lapaz-137

Above : old rifle.

Below : century old interior (reconstructed).

lapaz-138

lapaz-139

Above : bottlebrush.

Below : inflorescence.

lapaz-140

lapaz-141

Above : trout lake. Literally, there's trout there, to be eaten fresh whenever someone feels like it.

Below : the waterflow keeping the trout happy. And yes, you can go for a swim. There's even a hot-tub attached.

Warning : I didn't mean you as in yours. I meant you as in mine.

  1. That lion series is a perfect cattitude capture.

    And lol-nerable mention to the hand sanitizer pumpbottle at the "historical reenactment" hut.

    Yeah, aren't they just great ?

  3. And the logical stars of the show of a hummingbird garden with toucans. O.o

    Then again, I'm not really done squeeing over the hummingbirds and toucans.

    Or that bottlebrush.

    Or the cork-tipped cows.

    Or the sleeping duck.

    It's like being pummeled with a bag of very beautiful bricks....

  5. Why would you call that puma "lion" ?

    Well, in English it's "mountain lion".

  1. [...] a honest to god butterfly trunk right there, worthy of standing by the best of 'em, and what bird ever had a fish head [...]
