SWANS IN A RICE PADDY'S POOL

 Tundra swans would come to a rice paddy's pool at Inzai city in Chiba from around 40 years ago.

  40年ほど前から、コハクチョウが千葉県の 印西市の田圃の水たまりに集まり始めました。


A Tundra swan.


Two swans.


Increasing  year by year. 年々、その数が増えて来ました。


Four swans.


This year.


The paddy owner would feed them after 3 pm.



They would start to come back the pool at that time.

  6. Nice shots, I miss Misawa, Aomori, Japan where we used to live and we always visit a lake there, full of swans too.

  7. Goodness! I never knew those huge swans could fly! I thought they are heavy like chickens and turkeys who don't fly high up. Pretty photos!

  15. オモシロイ現象ですよね。どうして、こんなに集まってきたのでしょう? でもなんだかいい景色、、、のどかで、平和な気持ちになります、、、荒んだニュース(日本人人質の研は特に心が痛みます)があふれている中で、この安らぎはありがたいです。最後の広大な青い空の写真はとても好きです。

      こんばんは。 最初に餌を田圃のオーナーがあげたのが 、きっかけの様です。 白鳥の郷のデータで午後3時ころに沢山、白鳥が戻ってくると書いてありますので、3時過ぎると見物の車が、どんどん増えて来ました。

  20. ソロ、デュエット、カルテット、群舞・・・とバレエの白鳥の湖のようです。飛んでいる様子もすばらしい、ナイスショットですね。

    普段はすやすや寝ているはずの時間、錦織・バブリンカの再放送をみています。負けとわかっていますが、ライブで見ていたなら現時点では健闘しているので勝つ予感もあったと思います。残念。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。 you tube から、トオネラの白鳥、4羽の白鳥の踊り、等をバッlクグランドミュージックとして入れようと思ったのですが、所詮、田圃、マッチしないと思いやめました。 羽生君、錦織君と女性のアイドルが2人増えまして、内の妻もとても期待してました。
       奈良のブロガーの方々はお元気ですか。

      Delete
    2. 3月は羽生君楽しみ、でもその前に錦織さんのメンフィスオープンですね。奈良ブロッガーは皆お互いに友達です。初孫(男の子)が生まれ、お手伝いに大忙しの人、お義母さんの介護中の人、なんとなくマイペースの人など、そのうちにアプデイトすると思います。その時はよろしくお願いします。またどこかへご旅行中ですか?
