Another shot of whau pods after a foggy morning, taken at 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. I liked how the out of focus dew drops on the left echo the shape of the cluster of pods.


  1. Fabulous photo, Paul.

  2. The farther web echoes the shape of the pods. Very pleasing to the eye.

  3. Well seen & well done! Arty.
