Looks to be a gorgeous place to visit. And the colors you’ve captured of that bird are so vibrant and beautiful.
just love the way the ducks are walking in a line on the bridge. such a beautiful park, which is why you can’t stand there. if everyone stood there it would kill the grass:-)
You captured this place so beautifully. Stunning images, lovely compositions!
I really like the 3 ducks on the bridge. A lovely series
je vois de très belles images d’un joli coin coin de paradis :)!!!

That boat seems to be only half a boat. Do they rent life jackets as well?
Best to bring your own life jacket, lol. 🙂
Boats for hire struck me. Says a lot!
No place like home…. New Zealand is a beautiful place to visit
Wonderful shots. I love the colors of the Mandarin duck and the image of the ducks in a row crossing the bridge. I like how the boats for hire were “cheap.” I hope so: they’re submerged!
Thanks for taking me with you on this adventure.
I just love the picture of the duck! So pretty 🙂 Thanks for posting!
I wonder how many people can’t resist standing on that sign. It’s such a beautiful place with lovely birds, the lake, and the flowers.
These are stunning! Especially like the photo of the duck–what brilliant colors!

I just adore those duck photos .. they are all so very sweet. I love ducks and will be going to Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary (Victoria, BC) this week to visit them again .. first time since last spring. These multi-coloured ducks are fantastic .. I would love to know the type and where the photos were taken … same location or different ones?
Beautiful photos altogether .. thanks for posting them!!!

The guy in the boat has THE life!
I love the colours of the flowers and the duck! Also it’s cute to see the ducks walking across the bridge. Thanks for the greta photo….

You’ve been to Ngatea Water Gardens? I LIVE IN NGATEA! :] The water gardens are so pretty and the photos you took really show some of the best part of the gardens :] They’re so pretty and vibrant :] I hope you had a good time at the gardens :]
Great pics… DO NOT STAND HERE! 😀
Wow! These photos are absolutely brilliant. Well done! 🙂
I wish I could visit this place soon!!
Fantastic!!you would think as you pass NGATEA that this place exists— I never knew about and I spend 6 months of the year in Whitianga!! thanks for sharing
Love your sense of humour with that last pic. As a photographer, I’ve sometimes jumped over balconies or climbed over safety barriers or jumped on top of place markers on some mountains.
That colour on the mandarin duck is really vibrant and three ducks on the bridge photo is artistically composed. Great work – makes me want to visit the place!
Fabulous pics, great job for Ngatea ❤
OOH WOO ALL IS FANTASTIC, I LOVE YOUR PARAISE.

A lovely place and some very nice photos.

Thanks for the great photos. With photos such as yours I can experience places I would never be able to see in person.
