Naomasa Takazato and These Birds Made My Day (Photo Essay)
Late this morning, I decided to take a hike with a camera and tripod.
It's been quite awhile since the mangrove forest got my attention.
The river, stretches from the ocean, up under the Kin Bridge, to the dam on a hill.
The tide was out so, no tourists were kayaking through the mangroves.
Somebody was picking up stray fishing gear and trash, across the river from my position.
Later, I would find out, it was Naomasa.
I thanked him, for making this one of my favorite nature spots in Okinawa.
Further, up the river, this Little Heron was having a feast.
Some egrets, entertained me, for awhile.
But, that little Striated Heron, was the most fun to watch.
One pile of floating trash is the size of the state of Texas.
Everybody needs to start doing like Naomasa Takazato.
Pick the stuff up, before it goes in the ocean.
And, take it to the dump or landfill.
The birds and fish don't want it.
