Japan, Travel

Happy Distraction

On one of the mornings when it wasn’t snowing too much, I wandered back down to Shinjiko and found that there were fishing nets in the waters beside the main bridge, not far from a tiny fishing port. Between unused, moored shijimi boats, I watched herons, cormorants, egrets, kites and more, all plucking fish from the cold water with relative ease. All of these photos were taken within a few metres of each other and because I was there for so long, the birds gradually got used to me and I was able to get quite close to capture these pictures.

I have been trying to take a decent picture of the japanese kites for such a long time (years actually) so I was quite pleased with what I was able to snap here. They move fast and never stay still in the air for very long at all. I’ll still try for better but I am temporarily satisfied with these. : )
