[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A puriri - Vitex lucens - flower is suspended in a cobweb in the bush of Shakespear Regional Park on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula. The puriri tree, a hardwood and member of the teak family, is only found in the North Island. Trees are large & are often retained by farmers as shade trees for stock. Flowers appear for up to 10 months of the year and atract native birds, particularly the nectar-feeding tui, which probably accounts for this fallen flower.
