Photographer's Note

A pukeko (Porphyrio porphyrio)fossicks in the warm waters at Ohinemutu,a Maori village in Rotorua. The pukeko is known as the purple swamphen in Australia and elsewhere and is believed to have arrived in New Zealand about 1000 years ago. The building reflected in the waters is a section of the church hall of St Faith's Anglican Church at Ohinemutu.
