Otari Bush Walk.
The Kohekohe track.
We were the slowest group around the walk at Otari. That’s because we stopped to look at everything!
Ferns creeping up trees, fungi, insects hiding in trees, fallen berries, flowers and fruit; it takes time to be a real observer.
This photo is taken on the Kohekohe track, a magical glade. It felt open and mysterious. Sophie and Mel were able to tell us many of the names of the trees and plants as we went.
An ancient Mahoe.
