You must get me a picture of a GIANT WETA!!! So get your ass on an island with gigantism and wetas and get me picture. I bet you wont pick one up. I saw it as one of the species on wiki and I almost shat considering the only other insect I know thats big is the Camel Spider.
That's the only thing I could find. I'd love to see one of these insects.Conservation
Although the weta had native predators in the form of birds, especially the weka and kiwi, reptiles and bats before the arrival of humans, introduced species such as cats, hedgehogs, rats (including kiore) and mustelids have caused a sharp increase in the rate of predation. They are also vulnerable to habitat destruction caused by humans and modification of their habitat caused by introduced browsers. New Zealand’s Department of Conservation considers that 16 of the 70 species of weta are now at risk. Programmes to prevent extinctions have been implemented since the 1970s.
Here I am again bumping this topic from nowhere.
100mm f/2.8 for 1.3s
100mm f/32** for 480s
These are two shots on two different days of my sister's flat's deck in Wellington, the second biggest city in NZ. What I found weird is that these were two days apart - and the moon has shifted hugely to the right o_. (the building in the bottom center of the first is in the bottom left of the second).
Hopefully when I go back down there this weekend I can get up early enough for the sunrise, and go to this lookout point over the city:
So if you are still wondering, yes, New Zealand does have buildings higher that 6 stories.

yeah, I know
http://www.amazon.com/Canon-50mm-1-8...0004693&sr=8-1, go raeging and take some pictures! You'd be surprised with what you can take - point it at the sky/horizon and leave it going for half an hour at night to catch the stars, or something. If it doesn't have a CF card they're ridiculously cheap now too.
