The Daintree Rainforest

Up to the wet tropics in the northeast corner of Australia, we trekked into the Daintree Rainforest in search of exotic landscapes and creatures of imagination. This steamy place grows amazing plants and trees, some dating back to the age of dinosaurs.

The Daintree is the oldest rainforest on planet earth. It is home to thousands of different species of birds and insects. I found many of them in the three magical days I had to catch them with paint and photos.

Three days was definitely not enough time to truly explore the Daintree, but I know where I’ll be coming back to. This place tops my list of unbelievable destinations.

    Paul… love these pics. You caught a blue ulysses… and a cairns birdwing… so so lovely. We who live there take them so much for granted. Hey… I just thought of another place you really should visit. Haggerstone Island. It’s right up on the tip of Cape York. If you’re into the natural world it’s a place not to be missed. I’m not sure how far south you are by now… but you can probably fly up there from Townsville [or maybe even connect from Mackay] I should have thought of it earlier… sorry. I hope it’s not too late. Google it. I think you and Marla will really love it 🙂
