Australia’s vastness is difficult to imagine. With huge distances comes huge differences in habitat. From the punishing arid deserts in the centre to rich tropical rainforest in the north, it is a country to which I would love to return. Most of the wildlife images here are taken in and around the Daintree Rainforest, to the north of Cairns. The forest is a remnant of one of the oldest rainforests on earth. The species here reflect that, and the atmosphere created by the surroundings seemed to as well. The primitive symbiotic processes at work in these ancient forests seem to focus the human mind and my time here, alone for a week, was uplifting and hugely educational.
