A bit over exposed.
I call these bronze beetles, but I don't really know what they are (quite commonly seen eating holes in tree nettle leaves)
Gone too seed.
Planted. Eco-sourcing fail. In which case, how trustworthy are the Veronica elliptica, Veronica parviflora etc. that have been planted in the same area?
Unclear if wild. But not in an obvious garden. Bordering 'townbelt' forest.
Planted about 10-15 years ago in the townbelt.
Because Wellington needs more pohutukawa...
I would appreciate if your can tell me what sex the one on the left is.
Typical chiseled bark striping by kaka looking for sap (Mahoe tree I think)
I think these may be some sort of ink-cap mushrooms, growing in mulch.
Very small beetle killed (and rejected) by venus flytrap plant.
Im told this is nz broom? Does it have a common and/or Maori name?
Whats this please, seeing lots of them around.
Three mites might be a headache for a moth.
What a life.

Trapped in the bath, and to add insult to injury, something was biting it in the bum (see 1138931)
In this shot the head looks a bit funny, I think it has turned its head slightly, looks normal in the second (blurry) shot.
