    Technically Summer.
    On the so-called Forgotten World Highway, Taranaki, about ten days ago.

    But why...

    Well the area seems to be well bird shitted, so it's possibly a "scarecrow" of sorts. Although I understood that owls actually infuriated, rather than scared, other birds, so perhaps that explains all the poop.

    This shot gave me a buzz. In the museum shop.

    some frangipani? Beautifully fragrant

    Nice, great colour….

    Goes well with Cecilia’s sunset : )

    I felt really pleased with this picture, till I got home and saw the Fly…. but I guess that's summer...

    Daylight birds will mob owls (both koukou & German) - but not always at all. Neither owl is large or conspicuously 'eared'. I had a nesting blackbird and a koukou (ruru outside of the south) share adjacent roosts in my Cox's Orange apple tree...

    OK, so this is neither out nor about, and I have the photography skills of a gnat, but it is Christmassy! And weird. It's from a bag of Christmas tree decorations from my childhood and is, I suppose, a reindeer? Or someone's crazed anthropomorphised 70s cartoon character version of a reindeer, anyway. It's on our tree now and I stare at it quite a lot in fond consternation.

    Got to be Japanese, very Osamu Tezuka. Love those frosty antlers.

    I sat at the bus stop this morning hoping I might get a shot of a seagull sitting on the ersatz owl. But the gulls aren't quite that heedless of it. :-)

    Way better than a gnat! That'd make a good card : )

    First days of holidays always involve a beach but usually not a human oriented one. So here’s a few of Ruby and her friend, Jessie, this morning at Kakamatua – a bit along from Cornwallis.

    And while we're at it, here's a game of Ever Decreasing Circles Until the Girl Child Falls Over. No children were harmed in the making of this video, and one of the women who's laughing is the mother of said child. That's how you know it's a dog beach.

    We hope to spend some time around that area after Christmas.

    If you have the luck to have a high tide and a good sunset at Orewa, you might be able to take some interesting pics of kids diving off the platform by the bridge. I couldn't quite capture it.

    Thanks Cecelia, though never having been through there before I found it really distinctive. It's the area where Vincent Ward's Vigil was filmed, with Alun Bollinger's gorgeous cinematography.

    That's a sheep/cattle dog trick I believe; they are herding. Our old dog was insanely hard to walk on the beach with because he would herd us all until he was tripping up someone; tighter and tighter circles.

    My old stamping grounds (born in New Plymouth, reared in Hawera). Ronald Hugh Morrison country too. As a boy, we used to go in search in such river valleys for the head of a murdered and be-headed local girl, which was rumoured to be found there.
