A Japanese Retrospective

Since I am in the mood and still have no camera, here are a few shots from Japan. The flowering blossoms on the tree outside my window reminded me of some pictures I took during blossom time in Narita, Tokyo, Japan.
A Brown-eared Bulbul was picking throught the blooms at the Naritasan Temple in the “village” of Narita.
The Black-bellied (Grey) Plover was taken at a wetland sanctuary called Yatsu Higata, one hour from Tokyo on the JNR Sobu Line. Close to Tsudanuma Station.
