The lightning and thunder was pretty spectacular last night. The warm North clashing with the cold South .
The southerly always wins.
I’m usually taking photos of Kāpiti Island, this time was lucky enough to spend a night.
Foreshore Kāpiti Island
Kāpiti has been a nature reserve/bird sanctuary since the 1890’s. The Kākā is one of our native parrots. Clever and a bit too friendly
The korimako (bellbird).
Manaaki one of our hosts seeing us off. Amazing host and a place to stay….
