Another shot taken at beautiful Hopewell Lodge. I can’t get enough of this place and I know I’ll be back there some day! I was enjoying the scenery from the stone ‘jetty’/steps at Hopewell. This shag was sitting on one of the poles, getting ready to take flight. I guess I took a photo of the fellow in just the right moment 🙂
Travelling through New Zealand has given me a great appreciation for birds. At home, I love blackbirds, robins and little sparrows. You know, the cute little birds. New Zealand has such a rich bird life, and while I still prefer the cute little birds, I couldn’t help but enjoy the sight of this shag.
What are your favourite birds?
