The Hawaiian Creeper has it tough right now. They are fighting for survival against invasive species and deforestation. Conservation projects are currently attempting to curb their rapid decline. Let’s hope these projects succeed, because the Hawaiian Creeper is a beautiful representation of Hawaii.
These two Hawaiian Creepers are taking a break from the arduous task of survival for the moment. The plumeria tree is a perfect place for such an occasion. Plumerias have the light, sweet aroma that seems to lift your spirits and dissipate any worries into thin air. The aroma therapy is working, I can see these two having a wonderful afternoon together after all. Maybe it’s not so tough being green…
