Pocket-sized art with more uses than you can wave a Bic at. Birthdays, thanks yous, Valentines or even Wednesdays, there’s always an occasion for a stunning card. From promotional weapon to distant friend-contactor, our cards are more versatile than Optimus Prime.
Cards are designed to suit the most common image ratio of 3:2, but any image size can be printed—we just leave a white border.

Beautiful – I didn’t make it to the habitat when I was in Lae, so thanks for the insight!
Yes, it’s pretty small, but worth a visit.
It’s a sad story that the government sold it off because “they couldn’t afford to maintain it”. Now you have bird pens with sponsorship logos from mining & logging companies hanging on the outside – the very people responsible for destroying their habitat.
I put the “couldn’t afford” it part in quotation marks because the PNG government would have a lot more money to spend if so much wasn’t squandered in corruption.
Thanks for the comment.
What a gorgeous creature – great shot !
