The Unexpected

I never expected to find a star fruit tree in the jungle. I never expected to see any fruits left uneaten by the monkeys. I never even expected any decent photos after my many poor shots. I tried again after a group of hikers had left me alone, but at some new angles.


Really unexpected, everything was then done without much trouble this time, at least from my perspectives.
And so I am now saying, "I never expect I shall be a millionaire, and...."

Wow, beautiful shots of the star fruit! :D

Both of these photos are beautiful, but I especially like the second one. I hope you are as successful with your final 'I never expect ...' as you were with the earlier ones.

If you believe this might help:

I never expect Rainfield61 to be a millionaire--but just in case he's one day buying airfares to Malaysia, I'll send my contact information under separate cover, whatever THAT means. HAHAHA!

Sir, what you do cannot be bought with money. You'd go broke anyway, paying referral fees to God!

Interesting find... and very good shots....

Good luck! I hope your expectations come true. (Let me know when you become a millionaire and remember I knew you when...;>)))).

In all seriousness, you found a beautiful angle for these pictures. I never think about anyone else sharing your jungle with you; I picture it as being your private preserve! It was interesting that you had to wait for people to get out of the way.

I think if you don't expect a lot you can be surprised, and surprised and SURPRISED! :)

maybe they are the extremely sour type, monkeys don't dare to taste them.

great find in the jungle, btw.

Love the pics, and I have never seen how they grow, so that was cool too.

We have three star fruit trees in out backyard and I have never ever thought of photographing any of its parts. You just gave me a nice idea.
