Walking through Fukuoka City, I looked down from the bridge over the Naka River and saw this night heron. It was standing on the concrete at the edge of the river, just below a busy food stall (yatai) in the city’s entertainment district. It’s amazing that such a beautiful bird would choose to look for food in this ugly location!
