Pukeko at Western Springs

One morning as I was driving past Western Springs, I saw this group of pukeko on the lawns, silhouetted by the morning sun. As I stepped out of the car, hoping to get a picture, I had to hurry to get my shot, because the birds rushed up towards me in expectation of a feed, destroying the entire composition.


  1. Nice one!
    Great shadows and silhouettes!
    I haven’t had luck with a Pukeko photograph yet so I’ll keep trying…

  2. Aah, the “attack of the hungry pukeko flock” scene! 🙂
