  1. 蔦沼美しいところですね。カモメを頭にのせた狛犬がちょっとかわいそう。カモメの子供が甘えている写真も素敵です。

    卓球をされているMinoruさまの姿拝見しました。素敵ですよ。いろいろ趣味がたくさんでいいですね。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。日本にもこんなところが有ったのかと思ったのが、蕪島です。陸続きになってしまったそうですが、ウミネコが可愛かったです。

  2. Such soothing photos of greenery, Minoru.

    We haven't played table-tennis/ping pong for some time now. But maybe we can play with you some time in the future! :)

  11. 実は私もPTAの卓球同好会に入っていました。6~7年やったと思いますが、全く!上達しませんでした。とてもお上手ですね。

    花の名前もほんとによくご存知ですね。調べたとしてもなかなかわかりにくいものですが。柿ランというのは珍しいのではないですか?

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。もう5年あまり個人指導を受けています。そうすると上達が早いです。。カキランはとても珍しいです。
       花の名前は、旅行に案内人が付いたり、今咲いている花のパンフを買ったりします。数をこなすと分かってきます。

  15. こんにちは。沢山の山野草をじっくりと拝見させていただきました。ヨツバヒヨドリはフジバカマの花にちょっと似てますね。あとサンショウウオは自然教育園の水の中でじっとそてるのを見たことがありますが、陸を歩いてるのは初めてみました。小さいとは言っても、奇怪な生物ですね。ウミネコと狛犬の写真がなんとも面白いです。

       こんばんは。いつもコメントいただき、ありがとうございます。ヨツバヒヨドリとフジバカマは花を見ただけでは区別が出来ません。葉っぱに違いがあります。私もサンショウウオが地面を歩いているのを初めて見ました。
       ウミネコがウミネコの石像の上に留ってました。 その写真は背景に無粋な金属の柱が写ってしまっているので、没にしました。
       面白い所でした。

  29. とても静かで美しい湿原ですね。蝉の抜け殻はよくみますが、とんぼの抜け殻は、初めてです。澄んだこの沼で、やごの時代を過ごすのですね。
    卓球、ラリーが長く続いて、とてもお上手ですね。私はエアロビクスやってますが、とてもみられたものではありません。
    Have a nice weekend!

  35. おはようございます

    青森の田代平湿原、すばらしいですね。私、行ったことがなくて、とても興味深く拝見しました。だいたい、青森県は十和田湖ぐらいしか行ったことがありません。ゆっくり訪ねてみたいです。 前の栂池の記事も楽しく拝見しましたよ。栂池はいつもスキーで冬に行っていたので、夏はあのようなお花畑になるんですね。いろいろなところを旅されて、いいなあ! 次回の記事も楽しみにしております。

  38. 湿原では陽射しを遮るものがなく暑い気もしますが、青森の湿原ですものね。少しでも涼しい所へ行きたいで~す。卓球の腕前にはびっくり!機械よりも正確に見えました。これだけお上手ですと練習も楽しいでしょうね。

      こんばんは。 お褒めいただきありがとうございます。青森に行った頃は、今の様に酷暑では有りませんでした。
       卓球は練習の最後にコーチと試合をするのですが、30回か40回に一度、勝つ事があります。でも試合が一番楽しいです。
