Three mites might be a head ache 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)
Foxgloves are very common all the way up and down the tracks across Wright Hill, at times a staple of the bumblebees diet.
Juvenile reluctant/clumsy flier.
Small orange fly.
Beetle clinging to bottom of foxglove, the closeup shows something in its mouth, if anyone thinks they can identify its prey I will post it as a separate observation.
A megabombus wearing the white shield of the foxglove feaster.
An awfully alopecia afflicted animal. Judging from its wide face, it appears to be Bombus terrestris.
Wearing the white shield that denotes a foxglove feaster, a queen bee forages for food frequently.
There were at least two fantails, but three birds, but wasn't 100% sure that the third was also a fantail. Didn't get a decent photo of any of them )-:
Being eaten by red admiral caterpillars deep in this forested area.
The camera is focused on the leaf tent, but the out of focus caterpillar can be made out within.
Heard but not seen from the bottom of the Deliverance track.
Small patch growing wild.
Out and about during the day, but was lively enough so maybe just a juvenile learning the ropes.
Very smelly, Zealandia excluded personage. Perhaps hit by ongoing pest control in the area.
Dieing hedgehog in middle of Salvation track (not sure whether it made its way there because of the the track name ;-). Still breathing, but eyes tightly closed, unresponsive to my presence. Apart from looking to be at deaths door it looked to be in good condition, so I presume poisoned by ongoing pest control.
A tree which has many insect bore holes, some of which contain the remains of insects (see 1136514).
The remains of insects that have emerged or tried to emerge from a tree trunk (the tree is still live, see 1136518). I'm not sure whether some are just shells and others are the remains of complete insects that have got stuck on the way out.
Large gilled mushroom beside Burrows track. I neglected to note what tree species were nearby, but mainly native regrowth.
I often see Kereru or hear their flight in this area, these ones were making cooing noises.
Not much pink ragwort about on top of Wright's hill, there is now one less piece ;-)
