Kākā Feather, 10x Objective

(Nestor meridionalis)


Kākā are now a common sight around the hills of Pōneke, in no small part due to their reintroduction to Welington at Zealandia EcoSanctuary back in 2002. Kākā feathers come in many colours - from a distance they appear a drab brown - up close, they sport plumes of deep crimson, firery orange and wise silver.

This image is a composites of ~45 "slices" meticulously captured with an OMAX microscope, focus-stacked and stitched together.


All indicated sizes are printed on a Premium 255gsm Metallic Gilcee paper unless clearly labelled "POSTER". See "Papers" on the right for more info.

My microphotographs are printed and shipped from carefully selected art-print shops in NZ and around the world (for international customers). 

Please be sure to select the correct size option for shipping at checkout - this should correspond to the largest size in your cart.

Posters are usually produced by a different print shop. If ordering both prints and posters, please select the shipping option for the largest print in your cart. Please be aware that these items may arrive at different times.

International customers: Please note that I aim to find the best equivalent to the paper I print on here in NZ. Brand and paper weight (gsm) may vary depending on your local print-shop's inventory. I will be in touch if there is a significant difference.
