More colour in the rainforest

This is the time of year when the Climbing Pandanus starts to change colour. It's a species of freycinetia and I think it may be an excelsa which I believe is endemic to Daintree.

We have lots of them in the rainforest on our property - they actually adhere to other trees and can reach great heights - this one is probably about 10 meters high. Most of the year they are totally green but now their crowns are turning orange and will then change to red and produce their fruits. I'll try to take a few more shots as the colours change.
