Lots of birds in that beautiful lake...I love the way the water looks in that top photo even though I guess the coots aren't as glamourous a bird as the swans or as colorful as the ducks, it is my favorite photo.

Virginia Lake? Are you visiting the US or there is a lake called Virginia in NZ? Lovely shots, especially the second one.

Hi there - and thanks for the visit to my blog.

I think its time I organised another trip to NZ - I was there for a week about 20 years ago.

I think I need to spend more time away from work!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

PS: sorry for slow reply - I have been out of phone / internet range for most of the week - rather nice if the truth be told!
