I'm bringing bark sexy!

That's what Justin Timberlake might say if he were responsible for these suggestive images from nature. But he's not. I'm not sure who shot them, but they're blogged with Japanese text by someone named Hiro. Here's what Hiro says, in babelfish botglish:
"Sexy which can be made natural it is photograph collection of the thing. It makes good."
Link (Thanks, Seth Abramovitch)

Update: Looks like the blogger I pointed to earlier ripped 'em off from another site, which in turn collected them from various places around the 'net. Bloggers get awful sensitive about this stuff. Quang Pham says,

I'm chief editor of haha.nu. I've just received mail from our reader, that boingboing.net has posted the 'Nature is sexy.' It is originally started on haha.nu and you can check both the original post date and the comments + more pictures.
Conor says,
At least one of those pics is probably Poser'd and Photoshop'd -- there is apparent texture mapping stretch marks on the figure's hips...and the branches sort of grow from nowhere (as the figure was simply pasted into and over a tree image) -- etc. Too bad it's a phony!
Jason Coyne says,
At least two of the images are from Worth1000: Link, and I know the other tree/nymph image is also a Worth1000 entry, but I have been unable to find it in my search. However, here is another large collection of items in a similar vein, (with some repeats from your original post) that have some images I think are real.

Disneyland Pirates of Caribbean reopens: video, review

The newly refurbished Disneyland Pirates of the Caribbean ride has opened, rebuilt to include elements from the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise (most notably, several appearances by a Johnny Depp animatronic in Jack Sparrow drag). It sounds like everything's gotten an update: better robots, better sound, better soundtrack, and what appears to be a pretty painless integration of the film with the ride. I can't wait to see it once I've moved to LA (Just so long as they don't try to merge the Haunted Mansion ride with the unwatchably crummy film adaptation).
Overall I am very, very impressed with how this rehab turned out. I was concerned about the Depp-ification of the ride, but I think they handled it just perfectly. There's certainly new stuff to see, and new faces spouting new dialogue, but it's all meshed perfectly with what has always been there.

The removal of the 1997 rehab figures and scenes is also a breath of fresh air. Aside from the Politically Correct junk that gone jammed in there, those World of Motion figures never quite gelled with their environments in my opinion. The lone exception being the conquistador guys they added to the Fort around '00. But the new stuff and new figures really meshes nicely with the original surroundings.

WDI added quite a bit of new props and eye candy. And someone in Imagineering must have gotten a really good deal on wood barrels and boxes, because there are dozens of barrels and boxes everywhere now from the loading area on through the entire ride.
