Pente de macaco

We are well into our summer (dry season), which means that many trees are without leaves. Pente de macaco (Apeiba macropetala) is one of them. I personally miss the shade of the trees, but it's fun looking up to see the pods. Some have already fallen to the ground, as the case of these in the attached image. The name "pente de macaco" means the monkey's comb. It's said that our friends use the stiff brushlike pods to comb their furs.
