This photo was taken earlier this year on a Women In Action trip to see the giant wetas at Mahoenui. Several of our members got the opportunity to let a weta crawl on their hands and face. I didn' get a chance to experience this as it was decided that the wetas were getting too stressed. They are in a special reserve of gorse and are quite difficult to find. In return for the conservation people coming o show around this reserve we spent an hour or more helping them clear tracks and cut back some of the ovegrowth.
