Young, immature gull.
Brushtail possum expressing his/her displeasure with me. Wellington, New Zealand. The possum is a species introduced to New Zealand which causes many environment problems.
At night, a kiwi calling, then its mate replying - heard but not seen. The kiwi have been reintroduced to the area after being locally extinct for decades. They are free to roam, feed, breed etc without human intervention, but are surrounded by a fence to protect them from introduced predators. The fence is not designed to keep them in (and other flighted birds reintroduced to the sanctuary come and go as they please), but as kiwi can't fly none have left the area!
These are the invisible translucent things that brush against your fingers when you are swimming in the sea, but when you look, there's nothing there :-)
Normally I find them in ribbons all stuck together but they separate once caught and poured into a container.
They're transparent, tubular with an 'eye' at one end and jet through the water as one end of them pulsates open and closed.
Each about 1cm long.

Wasp drilling hole then implanting eggs into a bagmoth. Observed over a twelve minute period. A bit like keyhole surgery.
