Kotuku or white herons from New Zealand.

This species is at the limit of its range in NZ and the population is correspondingly small. There is but one nesting site the bird uses, and this is at Okarito lagoon.

The nice thing I found about photographing white herons in NZ rather than Australia, is you don't have to look out for crocodiles :)
