I visited Muriwai Beach on the coast of NW Auckland yesterday, beautiful weather for a swim (though the water was a bit cold) and a wander up the coastal walkway to visit the gannet colony.

Looking across Muriwai Beach:

Nice photos of the gannets. :smile:
Don't show those photos to John Cleese as he said in an old Monty Python sketch that he hated gannets because "they wet their nests" o_O :crazy:

^ The bees are crawling around like that on my Sedum too, must be a good honey-source for them.

Yes. Seems like a popular flower for them.
When I took the photo, I counted 30 of them on our plant.
We had hives in our property at West Melton.
This plant was quite popular with the bees plus the gorse hedge at our property there.

Not an issue down here yet, but maybe if the coronavirus worsens, next years show will be cancelled.

Last Full moon for 2020 rising over some Cu to the NE, the other day.
Today's moon has a nice colour around it which I tried to photograph, but it didn't come out all that good to put on here, sadly.

The pancake Rocks at Punakaiki.
Even though it was high tide, the blow holes wren't operating as the sea looked quite peaceful in the Tasman Sea.
