During this season, the forest floor comes alive with colour and activity while the canopy blooms with flowers and bears fruit above. Birds display their breeding plumage while animals taking advantage of the free bounty. The sweet fragrance of nectar fills the forest to entice insects, birds, bats and mammals.
