A beautiful female fox (vixen) sneaked up behind us when we were walking along a narrow country lane.

This weird and wonderful creature looks like a giant ant but it's an Oil Beetle or Blister Beetle. I handled it carefully so it wouldn't release the chemical (cantharidin) that causes skin damage.

This weird creature is a Japanese Suppon Turtle. Only my second time seeing one in the wild.

I bumped into this Japanese Weasel (itachi) during my morning walk. I was already standing still when he appeared so he didn't spot me and I had the chance to watch him sneaking around looking for prey. Nice experience.

We spotted 12 Eurasian Whimbrels (chuushakushigi) on the beach near our house. We don't often see them around here so it was pretty exciting.

Hwamei, or Melodious Laughing Thrush. Similarly to the Red-billed Leiothrix, this species sings beautifully and was brought to Japan 50 years ago as a pet.

I can never resist taking another photo of a Japanese Pygmy Woodpecker (kogera). They're everywhere and their tameness makes them easy to photograph!

We went to Higashi-yoka Mudflats in Saga with the goal of trying to find some Pied Avocets... We found them! Really happy to see them as they are uncommon in Japan.

The Varied Tit (Yamagara) might not have the prettiest call but I love their confidence and posing ability. One of my most photographed birds.
