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.

Glossy Ibis, ブロンズトキ

What a chance to see such a special bird in Japan!! Where did it come from?

At ease in a renkon field. Lots of food, lots of shade and places to hide.

From a distance

Looking for snails in a rice paddy

Looking great with wings spread 

In size a bit smaller than the Great Egret, more like Little Egret
