Strangler Fig tree another view

Strangler Fig tree another view (Ficus sp Cape York. QLD .RAINFORESTS)

We have many on our block. Fertiization takes place via a small wasp it lays its eggs inside the ripening fruit. as the fruit gets near ripe the baby wasp crawls out by eating a hole in the fig.
