This morning several species of birds were active at Yasugawa in Ritto City near the sports park between the Shinkansen tracks and Japan Route 8 (map). All of these photos were taken with a micro four-thirds camera and a 27-year-old 300mm manual focus lens. Focusing on moving birds is a real challenge with this lens, but it gives me a good excuse to stand along the river and watch wildlife.
