Canopy is the most challenging BoA scenario I have ever played, as well as one of the best.
Canopy introduces special spells to BoA, and I for one am glad that TM made them an integral part of gameplay; the standard BoA engine just doesn't offer much variety in terms of combat, thanks to the small range of spells and the overpowering strength of abilities like Divine Aid.
So, in conclusion, Canopy is an excellent scenario with, as others have said, good technical wizzbangs, and what I think is an excellent plot and role-playing experience (remember, an actor doesn't write the script for his own role).

 ! Rainforest Canopy ! Tropical Rainforest, Far North Queensland Australia
It is the search for light that creates the canopy, and the rainforest depends largely on moisture and control of moisture by the canopy in its survival.
The canopy provides an enormous food source for the many insects, birds, possums, and other creatures, as well as a habitat for some tree-dwelling species such as the snake.
Animals living in the canopy play an important role in the rainforest ecology too – by knocking fruit down from the trees, they allow the terrestrial animals to feed for a longer period of time as they do not have to wait for the fruit to fall by itself in its own time.
