The Red Cloak! - Red admiral Butterfly - NZ by 


Please view Large, thank you.
The New Zealand Red Admiral (Vanessa gonerilla) is a butterfly that is endemic to New Zealand. The Māori name is kahukura which means red cloak. The Red Admiral is a member of the family Nymphalidae, the sub-family Nymphalinae as well as the tribe Nymphalini. Red Admirals occur most frequently during summer and may live for several months, they overwinter as adults so can be seen on warm winters days. They are long lived, surviving up to 6 months in the summer, and perhaps 9 months for those who over-winter

The Red Cloak

I’m A Tiger.. I’m A Tiger! Orange Tiger Butterfly

WOW!! A Paper Kite Landed On My Hand!

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
