Whau Pods

On Saturday we had thick fog until late morning, and I found these beautifully decorated whau pods at the Arataki Visitor Centre. The Whau (Entelea arborescens) is a shrub or small tree, endemic to New Zealand. It is a deciduous plant, laden with prickly seed pods in winter.


  1. This is a beautiful nature photo and quite unusual.
