autumn garden things

We seem to live in an interesting micro-climate where things
just bloom whenever they want!!

These are my latest photos from the garden.

Wingspan NZ

Here are some more photos I took at Wingspan National Bird of Prey Center.



The falcons  do not become attached emotionally. 
They know that this place is a source of food,
so they are eventually wired with GPS 
and can fly wherever they please. 



Apparently, Hubby was very pleasing!

You can see this one's wire as he (?) perches on a pole...

...way over there!

 The falcons we saw are used for breeding because they were too injured 
to be released back into the wild.
Their offspring are released and are kept observed as the falcons are more
endangered than the kiwi birds.

Barn owls made their way here from Australia and have made themselves at home!

Determined flower

 As you may know, we moved into a house with a huge garden that 

hadn't been tended for a while.

Well, I didn't get around to planting these bulbs that were sitting along

 the driveway, so they decided to bloom anyway!

opunake beach


Somebody had a great sense of humor and made giant bird prints in the sand.

This is a mama and baby tern. Dad and Mom 
took turns feeding him but he still made noise!

I take a lot of photos at the beach but they seem to look alike when I get home.  
I always set my camera to take very large photos so I can crop bits of the water 
and foam to amuse myself.
