Whenever I'm waiting for birds, or just walking around to get some fresh air, small stuff always get my attention. You might not always like it, but insects are a very important part of nature. And they can be quite interesting! I was pleased to see the Akagi Kamemushi Shield bug, アカギカメムシ on Akame Gashiwa, アカメガシワ (East Asian Mallotus)
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.
