Friday Photo: 24 January

January 24th, 2014 at 9:36 am by Chthoniid

Well I kind of hope most of you had a more relaxed time off over Xmas/New Years than I managed.  Photographic opportunities have been few, but I’ve been having some good expeditions up around Okura.

There’s a small population of the endangered NZ or tūturiwhatu there.  Like many wary shorebirds, it is a challenge to get close enough to take photos without first, disturbing the birds and second, not having to crop the picture.  Finding a place to conceal yourself that is also close to the birds is tricky.

I’ve also given my photo website a makeover, and the latest blog entry has more on these birds.

    Thanks @Elaycee, it could be a busy year with more expeditions overseas for me. Hope your new year is shaping up well.
