'Apapane and 'I'iwi on Maui
Hosmer Grove on the slopes of Mt. Haleakala is one of my favorite places on Maui. Today I spent my lunch hour driving the few miles to get up there for a short while, and managed to get recognizable photos of two beautiful native Hawaiian birds -- the 'Apapane and the 'I'iwi. They seem never to sit still for more than a second, so it's very challenging. But watching them is a great pleasure.
