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.

Blue-and-white Flycatcher, オオルリ

In the city park

The Cherry blossom is late, the flycatcher came early. The bright blue bird would make such a pretty picture in the white blossom. After failing my Sakura White-eye session I wanted to give this a try.
The bird was pretty, the blossom too, but to get them both....

 first lunch

a big fat juicy bee

then a bath in a muddy rain puddle that could not possibly clean anyone up

still it didn't diminish the colors 

followed by drying and preening


Back to the safety of the dark woods
