Ural Owl of Japan 2020-2021 winter


We love owl "Strix", especially better flying than perched. For example Short-eared owl in most cases is observed flying scene because hunts baits in the air. Ural owl, however, does the same perched on a branch. At that time unusually for Ural owls flew around under the territorial dispute and yet from the daytime.
フクロウ飛翔。今は誰でも簡単に飛びモノが撮れますね。良い時代になりました👏

フクロウの写真と言うと枝どまりか木洞の中、お約束の枝どまりを最後に一枚。

Ural Owl flying.


Ural Owl flew from the dark shade into the glare sunlight. I set camera, sony A9 and 600mm/f4 with teleconverter, exposure compensation -2 f stop might be correct because so much dark in the background. We like such pics like these target in the dark.
陽が沈んだ山影から眩い斜光の中へ。逆光で近かったので好きな写真になってくれました。

Recent photographic equipment evolution especially AF makes easier for shooting the target in tough situation.

枯野に強い西陽が差し込む中、突如として二羽のフクロウが絡みました。(この季節なのに陽炎が…)

Japanese cranes 2020


This is a family of red-crowned crane (Grus japonensis), two juveniles fledged this year. Parent birds had took care and protected their juveniles against enemies like fox and bird of prey. Do you know such a place where observing wild them within 5m and photographing by 24mm wide lens? This is it!!

久しぶりに静かでレアなここへ寄って来ました。流石にこの距離(24mmレンズ)での撮影は1分ほどです。(今回、撮影・観光目的ではないので野鳥撮影機材はありません)

Okay, we post two shots included a front face reposting pic used for a short limited time last month in response to a request by anonymous. And it will be the answer that I made exposure compensation in A mode '-2 f stop' at the photographing because the target looked so whitish against the dark woods in the background. Edited contrast low slightly by Lightroom and just resizing by Photoshop with no cropping no trimming no editing. That's all, thx!

We unfortunately have no wildbird-photographing plan for the time being.
