Our Golden Week

got started at my wife's parents' house.
She was happy with the snowmen made of the snow
which her grandma preserved for her.

Shijukara, Great tit was often seen there this time.

She loves the field athletics.

It likely was good sunny day for the turtles also.

which couldn't go out on the rainy day.
Poor my older daughter, who couldn't go to SCOA's spring camp because of bad flu.
Poor my wife, who couldn't have special weekend.
Poor my younger daughter, who couldn't stop crying in her father's arms.
Poor Lance, who missed his fishing trip this weekend.

Poor Lance family, but they must be happy only to have good time together this weekend.

Busy weekend

Charity concert, which our friends Music Lab Familia joined.

We had to leave in a short time,
so couldn't listen their musical performance well.

Walking at dusk, younger baby daughter didn't stop crying...


Cherry blossoms started to  fall there.

Baetis's spinner(SHIROHARA?),
 don't tempt me to go fishing until next weekend.

Within 30min drive from our home.

Today's first new bird was NYUNAISUZUME,Cinnamon Sparrow.
Its song was different from common SUZUME.

This is our second new bird today. HIRENJAKU, Japanese Waxwing.
Please be closer to us next time.

Enjoyed happy lunch time. Thanks, my honey.

SAKURA is special tree for us Japanese.
Please encourage us a lot.

Even though

Even though I bet on slight possibility,
KANOGAWA main stream got colored already...(12:17)

Even though I couldn't fish there, got the first shot of him(12:46).

Even though it was past one o'clock, headed for OSHINO from IZU(14:21).

Even though it is already April, OSHINO is having its late spring there(14:38).

Even though I expected many crazy rises for the cloudy baetis, the river kept silence(14:43)...

Even though it was super small size, brownie always made me happy.
#20 parachute worked well in the evening(18:12).

Even though it was the rainbow trout, it had orange colored  belly(18:18).

Even though this is unclear pic, there was some small floating nymphs. KUSHIGE?
Even though I kept fishing until HIGENAGA time(19:00), added one more fish only.

Even though it was not fantastic day today, I'm pretty sure that I love the fly fishing.

Tame young MUKUDORI, Grey Starling.
