Birds of the Kotsuki, 2018

I was walking along the Kotsuki river on Tuesday, looking for birds other than swallows, pigeons and crows. I saw this duck, and decided to take a few photos with the pocket camera. Not great, from 30 feet away, but not that bad.

I like the curl of the tail feather.

There were also a pair of herons some distance farther upstream. These guys are always a lot more skittish and fly off when I'm still 50 feet or more away.

And, they did fly when I tried to get closer for a better shot. But, they only went a little ways down the river, to look for minnows. The sun was behind me at this point, so the colors and contrast were a bit better.

And then they were gone.
