Koru reflection

A while back, I was fortunate enough to spend a week in Fiji. My plane was scheduled to leave Auckland very early in the morning and I was required to be at the airport at 5:30 AM. Whilst in the departure lounge, I took this photograph. You can clearly see the reflection of the plant and the gate sign, but right in the middle of the shot there is something else that is not a reflection. If you look closely, you can just make out the familiar livery of Air New Zealand on the tail of an airplane outside the departure hall. It represents a koru, which is the Māori name for a fern frond unfolding. It signifies new life, growth and renewal.
To make a long story short, I had a fantastic flight to and from Fiji on Air New Zealand!
