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.

Crested Kingfisher, ヤマセミ 2

The day after that I got there early, but had to wait quite some time. When one bird past by flying low over the river upstream, I followed it at a distance for about 1 km. Lugging my heavy gear along was exhausting. I stopped to take a rest and saw the bird doing the same in a tree not far from the road. I quickly got up again and managed this shot:

Thank you!

Later in the morning 2 other birds were found further downstream and I got another chance. The distance was a bit larger, but I was happy anyway.

Practice diving and fishing

Coming up with just a leave, nothing edible.
