Giant beehive


This huge honeycomb has about one meter, and about seven layers arranged one over the other. It was built in a cleft of the rock, about 20 meters high. And, by an extraordinary coincidence, its location makes it look exactly like the eye of a cat carved into the rock (as seen in pictures 2 and 3)

Acually it really does look like a cats eye.

Auntnance, it really resembles a sphynx, too. Goody, I used my Lumix FZ40's zoom. Ava and Brandon, thank you.

This is the neatest thing I've seen all day! What I want to know, however, is how you got the first shot. Did you climb or just zoom in with a long lens?

Definitely see a sphinx in the third photo. (Egyptians in Brazil?) Very cool.
