Ever since I moved to the Wellington Region, I have wanted to go to Kapiti Island. I am not sure why it has taken nearly 23 years to do it, but thanks to a Hutt Camera Club field trip, I finally got there. Of course now I wish I had gone earlier and often! Everywhere […]
More images from Tiritiri, this time just bellbirds. Usually I only get to see the males, this time I got to see fledglings and females as well. They really are a beautiful bird with a beautiful song.
I came home with so many images to process from this trip that it is taking me some time to get through them all. I am super pleased with these images of the hihi and bellbirds, and of course the saddleback. Enjoy 🙂
The Australasian Gannet’s breeding season is almost at a close. There are still some adult birds in the colony feeding up their chicks so they are ready for their great journey to Australia.

I have always enjoyed a challenge and the dragonflies are certainly that! These images also include a damselfly in […]
When we go to places we have been at many times before, it becomes a real challenge to photograph something new. Time of day, time of year, even time spent there, all play a part in the choice of subjects to photograph. Today the light was not terrific, and rain threatened for most of our […]
This year has been one full of disappointment and determination. For two years I had been looking forward to photographing humming birds in Canada, alas I didn’t get there. While missing the trip was disappointing, I am determined not to let it get me down and am thankful I received refunds on all the cancellations. […]
On our last full day at Stewart Island the weather finally was playing nicely and we found someone to take us out on the water around the Paterson Inlet. We didn’t know what to expect as it can be pot luck as to what birds can be found on any given day, and on this […]
