Well, long time, no see!
I met a Jorg from Germany 1 year ago. He is back in NZ, for another 5 months. The ultimate work agreement? Work lots of hours + overtime per week, for 7 months. Have 5 months off work, every year. And instead of being paid weekly + overtime, get paid average pay weekly for the year...
This is the 6th year holiday in NZ. Has a car/van, some people in NZ take care of when away.
Stewart Island is the 3rd island of NZ, south of South Island. Ulva Island is right there also. A bird sanctuary. The way NZ used to be, LOUD with native birds... http://www.ulva.co.nz/ulva-island/Photos.asp
Jorg gave me his photos of birds from this island. He uses Olympus 4/3rds, tele is a 50-200 F2.8-3.5 I have to admit I'm clueless about this camera...
I'm very surprised at how close he got to these birds... This is a Native, TUI. Mmmm, maybe pronounced 2-ee
Usually, when seen this bird is black. Just not usual elsewhere to get so close.
