  2. Poor injured barn owl. These pictures are amazing! I keep going back and forth and can’t decide which one I like better.

  5. Michaela, Fee, Vimal, thank you. It was sad to see it injured, but I was grateful for the opportunity to see such a lovely being up close.

  10. Ruby, Amanda, sorry for taking so long to get back to you – I’ve neglected this little spot for a bit.

    We have been having too many adventures to have time to blog about them 🙂

    Thanks for your comments.

    Amanda, your trip?

    Mrs BB, we got back last Saturday. What an amazing trip! It is such a beautiful country, as you well know 😉 We both enjoyed ourselves immensely 😀

  12. Ah! I knew it must have been around this time. Good to hear it was all you had hoped and expected. Did you get to swim with the dolphins?

    Swim with the dolphins we did!! 😀 It was an awesome experience… almost wish I still had my blog going so I can show you some photos!

    It was a fantastic experience, and the weather was kind to us. It was a perfect day, considering it was the first clear day in over 6 weeks in Kaikora. Lauren bought a disposable underwater camera, (we are yet to get it processed), and we got some wonderful photos whilst on board the boat too.

  14. I’d love to see your pics. You could email me some 🙂

    If you have a few bloggy friends to think of – send me a write up and you can “guest post” here or on BB. 😀

  15. beautiful shots. I feel for the little owl, but she seems to be in good hands 🙂 Barn Owls are amazing creatures, and so affectionate. I work with birds of prey on a volontary basis, and I love it. Fascinating creatures.

  16. Simone, what a wonderful thing to do. We have explored the option of wildlife caring here, especially as we have no domestic pets to consider at present. But my littlest person is two years old – a bit of a perilous age for animals! It’s something I’d like to do when she is bigger, though.

    Thanks for your visit 🙂
