I was on top of a small mountain a few days ago when
 I spotted this butterfly. I think it is some sort of 'ringlet'?
 Does anyone know? It's not the best of snaps, sorry.

Water tower

Built in 1898 the tower provided Invercargill with
 it's first pressurised water supply. Unfortunately you 
can't go inside because it needs to have work
 done to bring it up to earthquake standard.

Petrified forest

Petrified forest,
Curio Bay,
The Catlins,
 Otago, New Zealand

What looks like rocks is actually the petrified forest. 
This is under water at high tide and stretches for 20 k's around the coast.  
Near the top centre of the photo you can see the stairway down the cliff face, 
this gives a little bit of size perspective to the photo.

If you are interested in reading more about this forest
