This is a border dispute between Buff Weka on our Lake Cruise/walk on #LakeWanakaNZ. Gentle and innocently trusting of humans, as we are recent additions to NZ fauna, comparatively. These birds chose to lose the power of flight eons ago, due to no ground predators and simply to save energy. Fiercely territorial, this interloper has over-stepped the mark. Only bruised egos usually result from these faceoffs.#Weka #NZFlightlessbirds #WildWanaka #NZLandwars ... See more
Flying over Lake Wanaka today, looking down on our backyard, then going to the magical Mou Waho island as seen from above in the beautiful afternoon light was #pureNewZealand at it's best, as good as it gets! With Allan and daughter Julie from the States. #LakeWanakaNZ #lovewanaka #NZmustdo ... See more
Quite special down here this time of year in Southern NZ - In fact - really cool!!!
10000% Pure New Zealand. How is this beauty even possible ..... anywhere! We picked the perfect weekend to explore Central Otago NZ.
Winter has begun - Seasons change - Mou Waho island's Buff Wekas don't. Always curious to see you. Extinct on mainland NZ, this flightless Buff thrives on this scenic predator free island, just saying hello to our friends from Singapore. Rob Roy glacier walk is cool too - But that is why there is a glacier there.... Winter is a calm time of year, a cool lake, reflections and snow abound, beginning of the ski season here in #Wanaka #pureNewZealand #NZWeka #nzmustdo ... See more

It is hard to pick a favorite season here in Lake Wanaka, each is so vibrant and dramatic. Autumn has to be a winner, for the colours which look like they are photoshopped, they are so intense! No adjustments to any of the following images have been made - Enjoy the last week of golden goodness in our backyard. #pureNewZealand #nzmustdo #realMiddleEarth ... See more
Fun planting trees with these great kids on our lake cruise/walk this morning. King Wally Weka came and visited us on the summit, looking over his prime real estate territory. One tree island and the whole of #LakeWanakaNZ is showing off it's true colours of Blue and Yellow. Otago colours true to the heart. Fresh snow last night put icing on the cake today too! #pureNewZealand #nzmustdo #realMiddleEarth ... See more
