Stagland, Upper Hutt, New Zealand


Stagland Wildlife Preserve -- Tucked 18km deep within the Akatarawa Valley ("the valley of the hanging vines") just north of Wellington, the Stagland was founded in 1972 as a living time capsule, preserving rare native and historical species of fauna. Visitors can expect a cockatiel casually sauntering by (upper right), as well as a polite wood duck waiting patiently for you to walk past.

These photo were taken with the Nikon D100 digital SLR, 20mm f/2.8 lens (upper left) and 60mm f/2.8 lens.
