Way up in the tree, you can’t see me…
Oh wait, we can see them! It’s two mejiros, or Japanese White-Eyes. They blend in so well with the papayas! If it wasn’t for their bright white eye-rings, we would have missed them all together. But there they are, enjoying some shade from the fanning leaves of the papaya umbrella. The next task will be figuring out how to get down to those ripe papayas for an afternoon treat!
