This dramatic photograph of a dead fish corpse with exposed sharp teeth was taken on New Zealand’s North Island at a beautiful Waipu beach. It was an eerie experience as the beach is very long and yet we were the only people there, which seemed rather odd in the middle of holiday season.
We had a picnic today at Somersby Falls. This is a beautiful place and we always enjoy our time there. The bush walks there are fantastic and there is plenty to see or simply to relax. The ever daring bush turkeys are everywhere and seem to be bolder every visit. Today we had a surprise visitor – a large four to five foot long water monitor. I knew they are around but usually they are found much deeper in the bush and I have never seen one at the picnic area. The bush turkeys tried to scare it away as they consider the area their turf. They drove high up the tree – perfect position to take few photographs.
