Muriwai! This is a phone snap edited in Snapseed that I grabbed when first visiting the place back in 2018. A lot going on in the sky on this day!

2018. Muriwai beach. I took this shot without even realising this rock pool was shaped like a fish. It had to be pointed out to me 🤣
Canon 5DIII, 17-40mm f/4L. Lee big stopper. 240sec exposure if I recall correctly.

Still one of my favourite shots.

Part 3: the answer to the question as to the mission is answered. The objective of the flight was pursuit not escape. But like many answers a further question is begged: does Kotare see the prey before flight begins or does he fly on spec? I genuinely don’t know. #kotare #kingfisher #sacredkingfisher #commonkingfisher #legendsneverdie #birdsinflight #birdsinflightphotography #birdsofinstagram #birdsfishing #birdcaptures #birdbrilliance #bird_captures #birdwatching #birdwatchingphotography #naturephotography #naturelovers #wildlifephotography #predatorhunting #birdsofaotearoa #newzealandbirds #titirangi #westauckland #auckland #lumixg9 #lumixnz ...

The hawks fly high above the Waitakere Ranges. This was beginning its journey upwards. In seconds it was up so high I could not get another photo. #kahu #hawk #swampharrier #harrier #harrierhawk #australasianharrier #goldenhourphotography #sunsetphotography #birdsinflightphotography #birdsinflight #birdcaptures #birdbrilliance #raptor #raptorofinstagram #newzealandbirds #naturephotography #ornithologyphotography #waitakereranges #westauckland #lumixnz ...

Level Two means getting back to some of the work I love the most.
A visit to The Hunting Lodge as part of my research for a magazine feature on Wineries out West - late afternoon sunset segueing into an evening of fine dining.
Notebook and palate primed and ready.
Let’s do this!

Spring is heralded by the Kowhai flowers. The Tui are mad for the nectar. The Kereru eat the flowers. The Tui attack the Kereru as well as each other. #kowhai #kowhaitree #kereru #kererū #woodpigeon #pigeon #birdcaptures #birdbrilliance #birds_bees_flowers_n_trees #springflower #naturephotography #westauckland #lumixg9 #lumixnz ...
