What am I?


This tiny moth was on the mat as we stepped inside the door. 
Does anyone know what its name is as I don't but I think it is rather attractive. 
It is only about an inch across.

A birds eye view

Recently I flew from Dunedin in the South Island to Hamilton in the North Island - and back again. These are some of the photos I took of the mountains, from the plane window.

Mounts Tongariro and Ruapehu
in a sea of cloud.

Mount Taranaki, (Egmont)

The Southern Alps

To read the legend of Taranaki, Ruapehu and Tongariro go here.

The Cobden tiphead




The mouth of the Grey River,
Greymouth, NZ.
Looking across to the Cobden tiphead.
A shifting sandbar runs across the river mouth
 making it treacherous for shipping.
