Thanks Alandra, Lulu & Shiz for your committed comment making! It's great to have friends and family view and make regular comments. No doubt you all know I love Native flora and fauna. I hope to continue capturing it for the world to see.

Yes, this is a great photo of a kowhai flower. I also have a photo with a kowhai (kowhai nest) in my gallery. This is such a clear and beautiful shot Mel. It's nice to be able to share one of our beautiful NZ natives with the rest of the world!

Alandra, I have these in my gallery also. Kowhai is a native to New Zealand and the word "kowhai" is actually the maori word for yellow. Mel, this is an excellent picture of the kowhai flower. I can see veins in its petals. Mine has a bit too much shadow on it I think. I like this one.

will look forward to more of these images, Mel, when you return to this park. Great macro capture of this unique bud, - unique both in colour and form. Have never heard this name plant/shrub/tree before.
