Long Bay, 12th December 2009.
Still at Long Bay, 12th December 2009.
Not quite in focus, but as I was holding the camera above my head for the shot it will have to do.
Another fine specimen, this time in Mt Eden on the other side of Auckland.
This is a difficult subject to photograph with my camera. Either the colours are washed out or the flowers are in shade. They look better than they photograph, usually.
