  5. Nice pictures - I spent two weeks in Japan many year ago, but I was in towns almost all of the time - did not see many birds, so its nice to see these.

  6. こんにちは、九州が続いてますね。金鱗湖の湯煙が暖かそうです。それにしてもカササギ、アオサギ、ダイサギとチャンスに恵まれましたね。アオサギ、ダイサギは飛んでる姿をものにされてるから素晴らしいと思います。これレンズ交換してると飛んでいってしまうから、普段から望遠を付けてないと撮れないのでは??
    お見事です。

       こんばんは。金鱗湖は小さな湖ですが、温泉と鉱泉が流れ込んでいるそうです。湖畔にシャガール美術館があります。
       鳥たちは、偶然にも恵まれて撮れました。ダイサギはなかなか飛びださないのでだいぶ待ちました。

  20. This is a specific show that I watch and listen to. The host, Andrew Warner, interviews successful entrepreneurs, mostly from Pakistani Dramas the online startup world. If that's a topic that interests you, the interviews are excellent and there are transcripts available with each show.
