Ohhhh these guys are lovely! We've been blessed to see them a few times now - best was a pod really close up when on holiday up North - watched them hunting as a family, and then having a rest afterwards with the babies in the middle and the older orca round the outside as protection.

I am jealous!

Love the country of the Lord of the Rings. So many splendid places to see. You are very lucky :)
I dropped in to the place near Wellington where Rivendell was filmed....so funny.....it was exactly like any other piece of ordinary NZ bush, but had signs around it saying 'this is the tree that Boromir leaned on in his promo pics' and 'this tree here was in front of the house'. All the grand waterfalls and cliffs were photoshopped in from Queenstown (which I went to see another time and imagined them on top of Wellington)
