Here’s something little bit adorable for you, a baby tītipounamu/Rifleman having a bath! I followed this family for an hour yesterday all the way from an upper track in @visit_zealandia to this stream down in the valley, where the parents showed them how to have a bath, it was a pretty heartwarming moment. This is a young male, you can tell by his beautiful green feathers and if you listen closely you can hear his parents calling 💚
Long exposure capture of White Island with a telephoto lens. Lots of horizontal lines along with a crashing wave and a lovely bit of sun filtering through appeal to me in this, along with a monotone blue/cyan colour palette.
It’s not every day you can kayak out to the most famous tree in the country! 🚣🏼♂️🌳 While this determined willow tree does sit within Lake Wanaka, it’s usually just out of the water, or hovering around ankle-deep, providing the perfect photo op for tourists. 📸🏔💫 After weeks of relentless rain and snowmelt, the lake is bursting at its seams and water is rising further up the tree. So with this unsettled weather set to continue, will That Wanaka Tree survive to tell the tale? 🌧💦 To read more about the future of this unique Kiwi landmark, click the link in our bio. 📷: Liz Carlson/Stuff
