Fiona is also doing a photo a day challenge. I have put a link to her photo blog on my sidebar.

Day 24 of 365

Was she born 6 months late or 6 months early?
Either way she shouldn't be here... but her Mum must have jumped a fence when we
sent the stock off the farm during the drought last year!
See you tomorrow,

Day 21 of 365

Ok so I am breaking all the rules here and showing way more than 1 photo. I got brave and went for a walkabout to inspect the result of Sunday's fire.
After a neighbour's burnoff went wrong.
{Approx. 300 acres burnt, but a lot that also wasn't :-)}
Across the road from the main dairyfarm, on the way out to our runoff.
On the left you can see the where Daryl (and team) were able to stop the fire from heading further down. That would have gone to Department of Conservation land. Instead it jumped to the right and headed towards pine forests. Thankfully it veered again and missed the forestry.
(At that point the flames were 3 stories high and the helicopters couldn't get near them).
You can see how much land was under threat.

Can you believe it jumped the beehives?!

So pleased a lot of the deep gulleys were left, including this one full of Kauri.
Hey Ganma, it looks different!
Some areas unscathed 
As was this chap.
See you tomorrow,

A very sad day (yesterday) when the bush caught fire.

Day 14 of 365

There is a back story to today's photos.
PART ONE of the story is here (click), about half way through the post.
And I cant decide which photo to use tonight so I'm sorry you are getting all 3!!
"Ralph" has turned up again.
Curious heifer sniffing him out in the grass.
Curious husband seeing how close he can get.
This little guy must be an orphan, we haven't seen him since September and are amazed that hunters haven't 'got him' before now. Pigs are very sociable - he seems to like the company of the cattle but scuttles into the bush when he needs to for safety.

See you tomorrow,
