Open Edition Giclee Prints A4, A3 & A2


A second trip to Okarito in the space of a year, warranted a second Kotuku painting. Okarito is a quaint little seaside village on the West Coast. We were lucky to see the beautiful Kotuku (white heron) and Royal Spoonbills nesting. An early bird tour with Swade and Paula of Okarito Boat Tours, was rewarded by the incredibly still morning with Mount Cook and the southern alps as a backdrop, along with sightings of both the Kotuku, Spoonbills and other birdlife. It was a magical morning, and was made even more special by getting a close encounter with the majestic Kotuku while he was busy preening himself, what a privilege!
