Birdwings mean butterflies and umbrellas are trees

Good morrow, Moss and Jarvi. Are you sitting up straight? Study carefully. There may be a test later in the year.

Ornithoptera priamus, known as the common green birdwing, Cape York Birdwing, Priam's Birdwing or Northern Birdwing, above Wallaman Falls on Friday.
Schefflera actinophylla is native to tropical rainforests and gallery forests in Australia, New Guinea and Java. Common names include Queensland umbrella tree, octopus tree and amate.

Wallaman Falls is Australia's longest single drop waterfall, located in the Girringun National Park – the largest national park within the world heritage listed Wet Tropics Rainforest of North Queensland and one of the oldest continual surviving rainforests on Earth.
