Reaching the canopy

I’m just back from a field trip to Girringun National Park.  We used a cherry picker in the field to access shoots high in the canopy! – Julia

The cherry picker allowed us to get to the canopies of trees 10-12m high.  There were many much higher.

Many plants were flowering including these every lasting daisies and Grevilleas and Melaleucas too.

A picture from the top – it doesn’t look that high, but it was a unique view of the savanna!

An emu running down the road. We also saw dingoes, butcher birds, the bower of a great bower bird, assassin bugs and clearwing butterflies!
