Hi, My name is Mary Joyce, and I live in the Queenstown area of the Central Otago region in the South Island of New Zealand. I have a true love of walking, hiking and climbing. Also Nature Photography and Writing.
I love the mountains and the lakes and feel 'at home' when I'm on them or near them, or on the tracks around them. Nothing like getting away from civilization (as much as I can), and have a fine, coolish, (not too cold) sunny day (and not too hot) and plenty of time to just relax and enjoy the great outdoors and to photograph God's wonderful beauty of the natural world. I love anything to do with flora and fauna. And always have.

One of the best things I did was to join 'Nature Watch NZ'. It's great to be able to know the names of the flora and fauna and to learn about them. Makes it so much more interesting. A big 'thank you' to everyone who's helped to identify my obs. And also it's nice to be able to do the same in return (when I can, on the ones that I know).

In the 'Journal' Section - (typed in green) and which is below 'Your Profile' (typed in black), you will see the 'Queenstown Gardens' Project that I helped with, and enjoyed doing.

That's about it for now.
Take care

May 2018 - Naturewatch NZ is finished and now we are connected with the global iNaturalist community.

31.10.'20 - I'll just be 'idying Observations' from now on. I've had enough, and now, not enjoying it as much as I used to - (I'm really sorry to say.)

I will still continue to walk/hike/climb and I will keep on my Nature Photography. I may put on some Observations from time to time.
I still would appreciate any Observations to be identified, if they haven't been.

Thank you
Take care
All the best
