Our first mushrooming of this year

We had a big party today for mushrooming. Got up 4AM, earlier than fishing...

About me, only one eatable IGUCHI and countless uneatable ones...

KOGARA, Willow Tit was sucking nectar from AZAMI flower.

TORATSUGUMI, Scaly Thrush was first to see.
It jumped to the brunch from the ground, surprised by my appearance. Sorry.

2nd Day of Camping

Got up before 6AM and went for a walk.

Like a playground. She loved it.

Young bird of GOISAGI,the Black-crowned Night Heron.

A stray SAWAGANI on the campground.

Let's clean up together.

At fishing pond of IWANA(char).

The coming of autumn.

Waiting for something...


Thank you for giving me a fishing time.

Camping in Sep.

By her strong request, we two went camping in IZU NATURE VILLAGE CAMP FIELD. It was about one hour drive from our house.

A Lizard was creeping around my canned beer.

After building a tent, we headed for a small mountain stream.

Caught many SAWAGANI, Japanese freshwater crab there, and released them.

It was maybe HACHIKUMA, Oriental Honey Buzzard. I'm doing double check now.

She gathered many acorns like squirrel.

Cooked steamed corn on the cob as a snack with dutch oven. Super yummy!

It was just the fast-sinking autumn sun.

To be continued tomorrow.

On the plea of her fishing practice,

we went to KFS after more than three months interval from the last one.

She got many fishes by her own skill today.

Especially at least two of them were much bigger than mine.

This is her first 40 over one. Still can't believe that she caught it by herself without any my help.

Let's go to the real nature field together, soon. You made wonderful progress today!

New shelf and current garden

I've done for assembling and installation of new shelf. We need more storage space for coming new family this fall.

And in our daughter's garden space, the offspring of OZIKO is growing up so much!

And the fruit of KOMURASAKI is turning purple color gradually. We are still having fierce heat in a daytime though, it is likely getting autumn little by little.
