little green parrot
These beautiful native parakeets were once widespread throughout New Zealand, but have now become very rare, and are under the protection of the NZ Department of Conservation. This is the Red-crowned species. Photographed at Mount Bruce.
the sweet song
of a Bellbird
A walk along the river again. Now the beautiful colours of autumn trees are added to the river reflections. A fantail accompanied us on our walk, but of course I didn’t have the right lens, and he was flitting from branch to grass and back again. At one point he was sitting only about six inches from my feet, but only for an instant.
above the river
You may be able to spot our little friend – well camouflaged among the leaves.
so happy to have Kereru in our new home as well…
of seagulls’ wings
the daily grind
on the transience of life.
