It may be winter but it is still warm enough here in Tropical North Queensland (and the Daintree Rainforest) to enjoy the superb ice-cream from the 🍦 Daintree Ice-cream Company 🍦.

Just five minutes down the road from the Daintree Discovery Centre, be sure to stop by.

PS - While all their flavours are super awesome, the wattle seed (which tastes a little like coffee) has to be the personal favourite.

Papilio Ulysses The Ulysses butterfly typically has a wingspan of about 14 cm, but depending on subspecies has some variations in size. The upperside of the wings are an iridescent electric blue; the underside is a more subdued black and brown.

The colours are produced by the microscopic structure of the scales, a phenomenon called structural coloration.

Flora in the Daintree: Now this one is a little unusual. Photographed at the Daintree Discovery Centre in Cow Bay, at first we thought this was a fungus. However, a little research (and some help) reveals it is actually a parasitic plant called Fungus Root (Balanophora fungosa), which is an obligate parasite that grows on the roots of certain rainforest trees.

The flowering structure is shaped like a puffball, which is actually a globe-shaped structure covered with thousands of tiny female flowers. These 'globes' are surrounded at their bases by a circle of a much smaller number of larger white male flowers. In flower, the plant emits an odour resembling that of mice, which attracts numerous bee, moth and beetle pollinators. Some cultures, such as the Paliar people of Tamil Nadu, use B. fungosa to treat certain medical conditions. Maybe not the world's most attractive flower, but it just shows that in complex rainforest, life takes all forms and is everywhere - if you just take the time to look.
