    • Thanks for the lovely imagery of your words 😀 The winds were strong on this day, and it did look as if he was riding along with the wind. I enjoy visiting this bird/nature sanctuary very much ❤

  2. Love the harmony of soft colors in your picture, Takami ❤ And the bunting is well camouflaged in the reeds, hopefully it will stay safe that way.

    • Thank you dear Helen ❤ I also hope this bunting and his/her friends will stay safe this winter. They seemed very alert and aware of their surroundings. Really appreciate your comment 🙂

  3. Beautiful image, Takami 🙂

    This time of the year, we have lot of visitors from the much colder northern lands.

    I spotted some cranes last day in our neighborhood.

    Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

    • Hello Sreejith,
      Thank you so much for stopping by!
      I’m very happy this Common reed bunting has been receiving a postive response 🙂 As you see, it has very subdued colours in the winter, but I feel it adds to the beauty.

      It must have been wonderful to see the cranes in your neighborhood! Maybe you will share a photo in the near future? 🙂 All best wishes to you and your family 🙂

  4. Amazing capture, Takami. So cute, the bird peeking out from the leaves. It blends in so well with the brown, yet still stands out Great work 🙂 Hopefully people aren’t using your photos without permission :/

    • Thank you Mabel. So happy you could visit, and really appreciate your comment 🙂
      I’m very glad you liked this little bird. I love the natural colours and how he blends in the reed field. But as you say, he does have his own distinct features!

  5. 風に立ち向かう姿が勇敢で孤高なオーラがカッコイイですね!
    風の流れが枯れススキというのも、日本人の心をくすぐりますね☺️👍🇯🇵
    思わず、頑張れよ‼️‼️チュン太‼️‼️と心の中で応援してしまいますね☺️👍👍🇯🇵🌸💕

    • Nasukoさま🌸
      こんにちは!いつもありがとうございます🙏私も”日本的な”ワンシーンだなあ〜と思っていましたので、本当に嬉しいです(*^^*)

    • Thank you Noelle! Common reed buntings blend perfectly with their surroundings during the winter months. They also move quite quickly. I was so happy to get a glimpse of this fellow 🙂

    • How lovely to see a comment from you 🙂
      I love earth tones too. And very happy that this Common reed bunting has received a positive response. They are so quick, it’s hard to “catch” them in a good shot 🙂

      Best,
      Takami

    • I completely understand – I had to blink twice to make sure this fellow was still there while frantically adjusting my camera settings 😀 You’re right, these birds (Common reed buntings) in their winter plumage blend in perfectly to their surroundings.

    • Thank you, Diana. Common reed buntings in their winter plumage blend in perfectly with the reed fields. It took a few trips & some patience to get a clear shot, but it was great fun to observe these little birds in action 🙂

    • Thank you Amy. Common reed buntings do blend in perfectly with the reed fields when they are in their winter plumage! I was so happy when this little fellow allowed me to take this shot 🙂

      • I bet you were!! How I’m learning birds are indeed challenging to photograph. I’ve been trying for so long now to capture woodpeckers without blur. Yeah, right. Keep bumping that SS up and I still don’t have it quite right. LOL 😘
