Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

This young buck came strolling through our property under my watchful eyes. I was just waiting for him to stop and stretch his head over the fence around my flower garden, to snack on the flowers, but he wandered on by. I think he was focused on finding a nice, cozy place to sleep for the day. When I tapped on the kitchen window he looked up, and stood long enough for me to snap his picture, before disappearing from view.
Handsome fellow, don't you think?
