The 'Akepa is an amazing bird. Only found on the Big Island with this bright orange plumage, the 'Akepa is a critically endangered species. They are also one of the smallest birds in Hawaii, but the 'Akepa's color sure packs a punch! These two are enjoying a moment together in a Cassia Javanica tree. Today is a good day, clear sky, beautiful flowers and a loved one by your side. Who could ask for more?
