I love these around Auckland :-) thanks for sharing, they're fantastic. Weta looks healthier than one i took work for our friendly entomologist http://www.flickr.com/photos/porkynz/4277974873/in/set-72157623095473189/
Thanks, Sandy. That botanic one in the middle I've been after for a while -- but they kept having signs in front of it (or, as I saw from the torn sellotape on it the day I took the shots, someone had taped something to it recently). At least that day it was clear.The wetas were a surprise bonus. That photo of yours is enough to give the weta-phobes nightmares! They're cool creatures, though.
ARGHHHH SACRILEGE! How can anyone attach anything to these works of art! Thanks for persevering to finally get a photo...trememdous :-)Yes Wilhelmina gave her life for education and science :-) better at the museum than on my kitchen floor!
Aye, t'is a sacrilege when folks use lovely pieces of street art as noticeboard holders for the "We're having a garage sale!!!" kind of stuff. At least the tape didn't take off the paintwork. Hopefully it's coated ...Wilhelmina the Weta. I like the name. ;-)
