Nagaoka, Niigata, Japan
Pentax K200D with Pentax 17-70mm - a nice kit for scenery, I think.
April 28, 2013
Part two of my Golden Week 2013 and we start off with views of Nagaoka Castle last Sunday afternoon. Don't be fooled. There were many, many humans about the place.
The bird photos were all at Junsai-ike, Niigata City on Monday morning. There was a nice variety of species to seek but bundles of tripods and agile walkers made for speedy record shots only.
|This Great Spotted Woodpecker was wary and flew away as passers-by passed by.|
He returned often but was unapproachable.
I guess everyone deserves a holiday.
|Had to shoot it as soon as I saw it as someone was stomping up behind me.|
I think it is a Grey Bunting.
|Again, I let all good birders down identifying these guys. I believe it is some kind of leaf warbler....|
Please help Stuart and Ayuwat!!!??
Actually I had a nice three day holiday!!!
