This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Herons and Egrets at the Kikuchi river 2

アオサギ,  Grey Heron

Showing some feather. I don't know if this is a form of display or intimidation. The Herons seemed to tolerate each others present more than the Egrets.

Moving on together

The Grey Herons could stand nearly motionless in the raging waters, allowing me to play with the camera's shutterspeed.

Got One!
