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.

Between the raindrops

we managed to get out there, feel the mountain breeze and inhale that pure air.
Thanks to our early start we caught the sunrise at its best!

While Jaap conquered 3 tops in one morning I hung around the lower fields to do my thing

Chestnut-eared Bunting, ホオアカ

Common Pheasant, キジ

Eurasian Jay, カケス

2 Willow Tits, コガラvery high up in the trees

Same bird from an earlier visit, when there was less green blocking my view.

I seem to get better in spotting moths. Now their names....
