Silver Fern



Trekking through the jungle, we came across the national plant of Aotearoa. It is a silver fern. One side is green and the other is this silver colour. A handy tip if stuck in the New Zealand bush... You can write messages which can be seen from a plane or helicopter with silver ferns. The light from the sky reflects very well off the silver side. Don't try it with the green side though...

San Nakji for President!

OK, what's the pooch doing walking on the fern's leaves?
