At least they had to be swept by strong wind in the evening and night. :)

wow - what a great photo, with a kea as well!

Hi kamalyn, this first close encounter (visible close encounter!) with keas was unforgettable moment.

I think I had one invisible close encounter a day before, when kea made a hole in my pannier.

A double rainbow in a beautiful location and with wildlife! Could it get any better than this? ... I think NOT! Awesome photo!!!

Tomas K☼h☼ut on March 12, 2012

Jean, in New Zealand you can get a lot of WOW! experience! Especially on the bicycle - close to the country, close to the weather, close to the keas (sometimes too much close - see info)... :)
