We've been clicking as a group (the aktbird57's) for over 4 years. This is the 56th rainforest thread. There is power in numbers - and sometimes numbers have interesting meanings.


China is a united multi-ethnic nation of 56 ethnic groups. link

Great NASA pix - Visible Earth - page 56 link

Jagermeister has 56 ingredients. No blood. link

Navajo code talkers honored after 56 years. link

Well, look at that. I just saved 7.4 square feet of rainforest and didn't even break out in a sweat. Good idea ehBeth. Thank you. Hugs and kisses.

bobsmythhawk - great to see you here.

We've got quite a grand little (or not so little) group that's been clicking together since errrrrrrr late 2000 (?)

Aa and the aktbird started a series of threads that has done a lot of travelling over these years.

We marvelled when we made it into the top 100 groups - then the top ten - then #1 (that was a major clicking push) - and we just passed 40 acres saved as a group.

I love this group!

ehBeth, thanks for the terrific new thread! G'd day all ~


The picture shows the diversity of plants that grow as epiphytes.
Low on the trunk are arums and philodendrons - with heart-shaped leaves. On the middle and upper branches cluster groups of orchids, bromeliads and ferns. The long roots (right) dangling from the crown probably belong to philodendrons.

As a tree ages, its epiphyte load increases until its branches are virtually obscured. Here is a forest within a forest. Most plants on this tree are probably orchids, bromeliads and ferns.

Hey... I'm here... and have clicked. Thanks for the new thread. I always liked the number 56. It was one of those great multiplication problems: 5678

56 = 7 X 8

Made it easy for me to remember as a kid.

G'day all. Can't remember whether I clicked or not, but will go double check.

epiphytes. Fascinating group of old-world plants. All of them have been around since the time of dinosaurs. Great photos, Stradee.

Some day, I WILL see a rain forest.

Twirl around the newly polished floor? Given some of the earlier posts, a polka would be in order.
