for some reason this Weka thinks a twig is enough camouflage… it doesn’t help either that it just fled here as noisily as it possibly could. A very common behaviour for wekas as we found out. Always fun to watch though :o)

    Hallo ihr Lieben,
    schön wieder von euch zu hören und so tolle ‚lebendige‘ Bilder zu sehen. Die
    Lime-Stone-Höhlen haben mich damals schon immer fasziniert,und ihr hattet jetzt das Glück sie bei so schönem Sonnenschein anzutreffen……

    Kathi – you stayed at The Old Slaughter House! That belongs to an old friend of ours. Hope you had an enjoyable visit there. I love the Greymouth to Karamea coast and your photographs really do it great justice :-)
