Castle Hill Peak

Castle Hill Peak is the highest in the Torlesse Range. Here the summit is obscured by snowcloud. The mountain is named after a farm on the western side. This view is from the east. On the right-hand side is The Gap, which is the distinguishing feature of the range as seen from the Canterbury Plains.

Unusual Ladybird

I found this strange ladybird on the Angelica flowers. It was the same size and shape as the common two-spot ladybird.
