The massive scale of some of these tropical plants is hard to convey in pictures. For example, I’m looking down at this gigantic fern from a hanging bridge way up near the top of the jungle canopy. The fern is probably 15 feet or more in diameter, and the white thing near the center which looks like a white flower is actually a giant palm leaf type plant.
Similarly, this picture at first looks like a close-up picture of a small patch of garden. But it is also taken from a hanging bridge, and the blue river water, giant ferns and mammoth flowering bushes make up an entire ecosystem.
