Eve and I recently did a little tour of the South Island. I haven't even gone through all the photos, much less write up the trip. When transferring pictures from the camera to the computer I spotted these:
This tui has been feeding on flax nectar. You can see pollen on its head and beak.
A red damselfly (Xanthocnemis zealandica)
NZ's other common damselfly (Austrolestes colensonis) is blue or green (female). This male is particularly well focussed. If you enlarge the picture you can almost count the cells of its compound eyes.
A wild flower near Fox Glacier. We don't know its name.
A rare bearded orchid at Virgin Flat (yes, really) near Westport.
