For regular nature walkers, the sights, sounds and smells of the forest are nothing new, but for those who rarely visit the forest, getting up close and personal with the world of the tree canopy can be a new experience. The higher up you go in the canopy, the more the world changes around you, different creatures and birds appear, but even the same giant tree shows us a different face up in the airy, sunlit branches of the canopy than it does down below, in the canopy and the thick trunks.
