ちょっとしたいいこと A bit of good news

この度Bird Photographer of the Year 2018 Garden and Urban BirdsカテゴリーでExpert Commended(ベスト100)に選ばれました。昨年当ブログにも載せたものですが、選ばれた写真はこちらです。

I recently learned that one of my photographs was given “Expert Commended” recognition in the ‘Garden and Urban Birds Category’ for this year’s Bird Photographer of the Year contest. I had the pleasure of sharing it on my blog last year, and would like to reintroduce the following:

すれ違い “Passersby”

本当に、嬉しいです。これからも日本の自然・日本の野鳥の魅力を多くの方に知っていただけるよう、撮影技術のレベルアップとともに皆さまの「心」に残る一枚を目指していきたいと思っております。今後ともどうぞよろしくお願いいたします。

I feel that receiving this recognition on my first try is a pretty good result, and it’s great to see my work featured with thousands of extremely talented photographers across the globe. Thank you all for always encouraging me with your comments and encouragement. It means very much to me.

  1. Such a beautiful shot! Why I have a feeling that I already commented on it? I have definitely seen it in the past. May be it was somebody’s reblog of your post? Anyway, it is so wonderful that such a precious bird lives so close to people.
    This morning I had a walk with a friend, and we saw a kingfisher! There was no chance to take a picture, but I enjoyed watching him fly across the river, and later return. That was a busy place full of walkers, cyclists and dogs, and there were no bushes growing along the river because they were all cut down to let the walkers enjoy the view. No place to rest for a little kingfisher. People always think only about themselves 😦

    • Hello dear Inese!
      Thank you so much ❤
      Yes, you're memory is correct! I had originally shared this photo on my blog in January 2017, and you had commented so nicely on it:

      I shared it again on this post (Feb 2018) after learning that it had been selected as a "commended" image for the Bird Photographer contest. So, I can imagine it might have caused some confusion…

      This particular Kingfisher was a resident of a small park in the center of Tokyo. As you say, it was amazing that she was so close to people – including those who were jogging and busily passing by.

      I am so happy you saw your Kingfisher!! ❤ ❤ It must have been a wonderful moment, and even better to share it with a friend 😀 😀

      I feel the same as you regarding the actions of people… I try to do my part each day, with the sincere hope that all of us can contribute to making this a better world for all living beings…
