Tree fuchsia in flower and with fruit too I think (a bit hard to tell from the ground as these were tall trees - but I'll see if I can find a photo of the fruit). There was a kaka hanging upside down feeding on the fruit I think (unless it was the flowers!).
The second photo shows a flower (below the kaka's foot) and possibly fruit. Photos are still-frames from a shaky video)
