Week Twenty: Bleak sheep

When we went for a run around Moke Lake, the weather was pretty bleak, but the sheep didn't seem to mind!

This fella here is matagouri - apparently it is an endangered species in the North Island. In the South Island it endangers your clothing and shins and (should nature call on one of your nature walks) your 'sensitive areas'. It can look quite striking in photos though. It has also been called 'wild Irishman'. I wonder what the Irish call it?
