I just now realized, looking back on Ink Tea's original comment that the implication is that the pygmy cone found that tall 34 foot piece of bamboo driftwood on that beach already erected and then simply jumped up to the top of it.

Let me assure you, that was not the case. He used primitive tools and cunning guile to get that bamboo erected, and once it was erected, he climbed the perilous surface of the once proud bamboo stalk to sit upon the top.

A sign, man's most honored, noteworthy, and commanding form of commemoration. A fitting tribute indeed, to a most celebrated moment in our recent history.

We also take it as a most gracious and deferential gesture that you have given first billing to the performers of the Monster Barrel troupe, before the organizing human participant.

Your sensitivity to these ideas gives me all the more reason to appreciate this community, and your collective welcoming and receptive attitudes to work outside the normal anthrocentric district, such as my new undertakings. I would be quite interested in collaborating with you to interpret and understand the gap between our cultures. This particular work leads me to wonder whether the human artist paints not just humanity on the canvas of my brethren, but pours something of himself into this mold. Does he see himself as a monster, as outsized for his small town, as craving attention and direction on the road of life? Questions like these, perhaps, are beyond my scope alone. I can only report on life this side of the median, but I might need your help to understand why any of us would cross the road. Keep me in mind, and perhaps let me know.

Beware of the Brazillian Wandering Spider though. More of them in Costa Rica than in Brazil too. Darn biologists with their inaccurate naming conventions. Definitely worth it to go see trapdoor spiders, hear the click frog symphony at night, maybe catch a tapir napping. All four new world monkeys in a single jungle might be particularly appealing to you too, what with the opposable thumbs and hair everywhere.

I had pondered the options at my disposal for documenting the fascinating behaviors of cone kind. Ultimately, I took refuge in the good company of documentarians before me, principally taking my guidance from one Evil Sugar, and her ursulamorphic quarry.

I assure you, I will do my best to comport with the best practices of an agent, acting on behalf of the interests of my laconic compatriots. These vote points will be used to further their voice, and not simply serve as a pulpit for advancing my own, personal agenda.

That said, thank you for your high praise. However, it is my photographer's good ear and quick eye, Costa Rica's landscape, and ultimately Lanceolar Nigripes' cunning that make my style noteworthy at all.
