Kaka dexterity. The Kaka one of an number of New Zealand native parrots are very skilled at handling objects. This wild one has just been given a peanut as a treat and having carefully picked the nut up with its beak from my hand is now holding it in one claw while it peels off the skin.

Afternoon at Surat Beach - the Catlins, Southland, New Zealand.
Surat Beach was named after the wreck of the sailing ship Surat which foundered off this beach in 1874.

The waterfall at the Blanket Bay "Hotel" Doubtful Sound. Actually the Blanket Bay "Hotel" is not a hotel at all. It is a platform on a small island which is used to helicopter out catches from the crayfishing fleet operating in the sound. But... there this rather nice waterfall next door.
