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.

The ladies' eyes turn black in breeding season.

1 male and 3 females. Looks like the small girl on the left has set her eyes on him.
