Weka in natural setting
One of the reasons I went to Stewart Island was to see the bird life. Ulva Island, a small island just a few minutes away from Stewart Island by boat, is a bird sanctuary that is rife with bird life not found in other parts of the world. What's more, you can actually get pretty close to them here, though they are completely wild. I did my best to take pictures and videos, but as with the world of the wild, you never know where they'll go next or how the shot will turn out. In some of the videos, it's best to listen rather than look at the grainy scene.
