As winter approaches in Chile spring is arriving in the northern hemisphere.
These are the deciduous forests of Homme.
Dormant throughout the winter,
they now undergo one of the most magical transformations in the natural world.
By late spring the landscape is wrapped in a vibrant fresh green.
Here, instead of conifers, there are broad leaved trees,
and that makes the character of this forest entirely different.
Being broad, these leaves trap much more light than needles,
but they're also thin, soft and edible.
And others can eat the leaf eaters.
