    Default Weird Much?

    Browser Beware! Shes a heavy one! full of pictures

    This past week almost (thu-mon) we have been living it rough in the NZ wilderness....ok maybe not wilderness, but close enough

    While rumaging and tramping through the bush, i encountered ORCHIDS! YAY! Everyones favorites and a pile of fungi native to NZ and some rare too......

    Amoung that i got to shoot a 22' rifle, and i found i have perfect aim too! and also went and found a 30yr old Vauxhaul somewhere in the middle of a huge gully!

    Orchids-
    1-2 My take-home Earina sp either aestevalis or autumnalis
    3-4 Drymoanthus adversus in situ
