Could only manage a quick cellphone pic of the brand new mini buses that were launched today. This one is doing the bus route that goes down Bridle Path Road. I got quite a surprise when the bus stopped in front of me and a chap with a video camera and some office folk jumped out of it.

Each year I visit the parks around Christchurch to see the magnificent sight that is thousands of Monarch butterflies clustering together in the trees. I never tire of this! And, I always get the opportunity to introduce new people to this phenomenon – usually people in the park who wonder what I’m photographing up in the trees and then when they realise they are in shock at not having ever seen it before.

Here’s a little video I also made of the butterflies and placed onto my Facebook page:

This section of the Avon River is where the earthquake memorial is being built. The final design consisted of a long wall and it’s clear to see this taking shape now. It’s expected to be finished in time for next year’s anniversary.
