On this day (December 11th)....................



December 11th 2007.

Common Kingfisher on the river near my apartment. Normally a shy species, for a week or two 4 years ago this individual was surprisingly approachable. It's a shame that most of these trees have been chopped down since.................

This is a common bird across south Hokkaido but I've struggled to get decent shots of it. A big lens and a lot of patience is needed I think, alas I have little of the latter and none of the former..........
