Good Morning, Rainforest
To the bringer of life!
As the sun rises, its rays gradually awaken the creatures of the wild. The soft light prompts birds to sing with their sweetest voices and illuminates the leaves and wildflowers. The sun’s warmth invigorates ants, bees, and butterflies, giving them the energy they need to start their day. From dawn till dusk, countless living beings are affected by the sun’s arrival and departure.
