Wild figs, continued

More fruit is falling from this wild fig tree (Ficus nymphacaefolia). Top image, two of the figs I broke open. Bottom image, the tree, better known as a "strangler fig tree". Towards the back of those massive trunks is a mucajá palm (Acrocomia aculeata), which is the host. It's still very much alive, but I imagine that it's beginning to feel the squeeze.
