Against my expectations, yesterday remained still, so I went to Pauatahanui. To my great joy there were half a dozen kingfishers in the big tree, diving repeatedly for crabs in the calm water. Sadly, I had left the big Canon at home, and despite my earlier discoveries, I tried to capture them with the Olympus. Aaaagh! The results were ugly. Nevertheless here is one image which is at least pointing in the right direction.
Fortunately the conditions at Paremata were such that the Olympus could redeem itself with some nice sharp landscape pictures.
There are only so many shots I can show of a favourite place, but the light was a lovely honey colour and combined with the water conditions I couldn’t pass it up.
