Another ornament

Just when we had been saying we hadn't seen any tree frogs for a while - this morning we noticed the Giant White-lipped Tree Frog keeping company with our favourite Sunbird painting - seems the male Sunbird might have something to say about it too ... !

We bought the Jim Tyrie painting many years ago when we fell in love with it in a Brisbane art gallery and at that time we had never seen a Yellow-bellied Sunbird. It has always had pride of place wherever we have lived and when we made Daintree our home twelve years ago we were stunned to find our property alive with these wonderful tiny birds. We had no idea, from the painting, just how small they are - about 10 cm or just over 3 inches.
