Back to the topic of Hine's Emerald. I just received a box of specimens from Tim Cashatt. These are vouchers from the survey work performed by Wayne Steffins in 1999. They are being added to the MOS database today. This augments our data considerably, and hopefully will avoid duplication of sites in the future.
This photo was taken with my Fiji FinePix S7000 using a 4x diopter on the front, and shooting in normal mode. I was able to get quite close to this perching male.
