"Worth Two In The Bush"

"After a wonderful morning exploring some native bush on Chatham, I stumbled across this beautiful bird's nest, which was woven so intricately into a kawakawa bush (I believe the nest & eggs are the work of a Song Thrush). The careful observer might note how the kawakawa leaves have no holes in them - unlike the kawakawa found on mainland N.Z. - this is because the Kawakawa Looper Moth is not present on the Chathams, hence it doesn't get eaten! I was intrigued by all the endemic native plants we saw here, with many species that look familiar, but are actually quite unique. Same same, but different!"

“When Peter delivered our pieces, we couldn't believe the incredible detail. The images on his website - impressive as they are - really didn't do our prints justice!“
