NENE - Hawaiian Goose

www.ISLANDLIGHTPHOTO.COM

The intrepid Nene lives in a lavascape seemingly unfit for a goose. Here one stands at the brink of a crater hundreds of feet deep, and gazes with me at the rainbow that ends at the craters bottom. Hawaii Volcanoes national Park.

Down to less than 30 individuals, they now number 3-4000 both wild and in captivity.
