I don't expect anything less than a silent chuckle from my readers after they see this image. No "porn" meant. This is the real thing, a copaíba tree (Copaifera multiguga) that has been tapped for its oil and then plugged for another day. I took this picture in the Tapajós National Forest a few weeks ago. We have copaíba at Bosque Santa Lúcia, but none that are being tapped.
