My most favourite photo from my photo essay on Zealandia's wee takahē chick, named Te Āwhiorangi. These photos were taken at such a special time - at just over two months old his coloured feathers are just starting to appear over the black down, his beak is still shiny black, and he is at a most curious stage. See more takahē chick photos over on my blog.
10% of the artist's proceeds go to Zealandia EcoSanctuary to support their conservation efforts.
