Two New Year things (Birds and Calligraphy at the Dentist) ;


*Birds at Natural Park part 1 *
On 6th, my husband suggested me to visit Kirara Natural Park.  Happily, we could find this gorgeous Osprey from observation center. He was looking for fish on the wooden perch.  Let me make this post part 1 from this place :-)  
This picture of flying Osprey taken by my husband (^_^)
Saunders's gull with crab;  So happy to be able to catch the moment♪


Great Egret  with long face and beak:-)  at the edge of the park's tideland.
And these birds shots are for  "Fridays Hunt", (my Week's Favorite)

*My next neighbor's kids made Wooden Bird at the park*
The day before we went to the park, from my next neighbor I happened to know that Wooden Bird (bird is this year's zodiac sign) making event were going on there. Their kids made these works.  The clock behind them were an ornament I borrowed p:-)  


* "First Calligraphy of the Year "  at the Dentist  *
Since at the end of the last year, I started to go to the dentist. I was surprised that they posted the works written by the patients and others on the ceiling of the treatment room.  And the local Cable TV covered about it on 13th


The patients can see the works while the treatment as the works are on the ceiling. I thought it a "nice idea".  The lovely young lady from the cable TV with the character.
She also was asked to write;


*Signboard at the Dentist*
The red part of the long one on the left shows the name of the dentist.  In Japanese, we call dentist "歯科・ Shika" and deer is also called "鹿・ shika".  We don't see deers around the area so the sign is just "play on words" with homophenes p:-)
ps; I wrote about the reason why the Calligraphy in the dentist in my next post;

Although I posted mine, I haven't been able to visit you all.  We still have a couple of inquiries for my late late parents house, not finalized, etc (^^;)   Hope your new week will be a wonderful one ♪    I'll start Visiting You Soon ☆☆☆

Amazing bird photos... What a fun idea at your dentist! And why not - Because to me the Japanese characters are like Art in black & white! Have a great week Miyako.

Hi Miyako,
Lovely bird captures from you & Mr Orchid this week, I like the mosaics you've created with them. I was interested to read about your visit to the dentist as I have an appointment with mine tomorrow, I don't think I'll be seeing any poetry on the ceiling there though!
Happy MM from Normandy.

Good morning Miyako, lovely photos you've shared. Give me the birds and everything else, but going to the dentist is never fun for me!

Lady Fi said...

Fabulous bird shots! I love the osprey. Hope you had a wonderful New Year!

wonderful bird photos!

Tamago said...

Great captures of the birds! Flying Osprey looks magnificent and the gull with crab is so adorable :-) What a fun idea to exhibit calligraphy works on the ceiling. At the hair salon I go to, they put TV monitors on the ceiling above hair washing chair so you can watch TV while you have your hair washed. Funny that dentist put up 鹿 sign :-)
Have a wonderful day, Miyako san xoxo

Hello Miyako,

What a fierce looking bird the osprey is! Great photos of all of the birds. The egrets are so pretty, pure and white.
Calligraphy on the ceiling is a great option for patients at the dentist. I hate going there and would welcome something to read while my mouth was open.

We have ospreys too -=- it was fun to see you have the same bird!! The wooden roosters are very nice -- those are talented youngsters!

It's a good to have something to look at while in the Dentist's chair -- excellent idea.

Great bird photos.

Worth a Thousand Words

Erica Sta said...

The special pronunciation are interesting. Wondering why calligrapher in the dentist area?

The Osprey was awesome. - Love that you have things on the ceiling to look at while at the Dentist. I think that would help one to relax more. - Fun sign with the deer. - Enjoyed your post as always.

Hello Miyako, the Osprey photos are wonderful. Great captures of the osprey and gulls. It is nice to see the writing on the ceiling at the dentist. I like the cute wooden birds too. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy day and weekend!

Claire Moxon-Waltz said...

Hello dear Miyako - it is lovely to see your osprey pictures because finally, we have a bird that we share across the many miles! Sometimes we see an osprey here too! I have recently been to the dentist to have a tooth removed and I can say that it was not a very happy experience for me, but sometimes necessary. I love the chicken/rooster ornaments from the children! Have a wonderful week!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

The Osprey is such a regal bird! Love your photos and I always enjoy learning more about your life there. Sweet hugs, Diane

Good evening Miyako..I hope you are well. I love the osprey photos as I saw one here catch a fish and fly off with it. It stopped here during migration...Michelle

bj said...

Hi, Orchid...I think going to the dentist is the worst thing..I just hate it and I need to go in the worst way. It is sooo expensive to have work done on the mouth.
Hoping you get the house business straightened out soon.

Anni said...

Those little roosters made of wood are so neat!!!

Love your birds today....the osprey is one of my favorite birds!! You got some glorious photos!!!

I want to send along my gratitude for your sharing this post with us bird enthusiasts at I'd Rather B Birdin'. Much appreciated!!

pattisjarrett said...

Osprey are beautiful birds! Pretty calligraphy--and I like the flowers around it, too. What an unusual place to display it, but a nice touch! I wouldn't mind having something pretty to look at during doctor and dental visits!

Betty Crow said...

Very enjoyable post. Love the Osprey.

A Colorful World said...

Such an amazing dentists office, Miyako! Such wonderfully-done artwork...and the birds made by the children were also just adorable! So well done. Loved the osprey as well.

edenhills said...

The bird images are wonderful! Nice to have something other than a plain ceiling while at the dentist. Thanks so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great week!

Nora said...

Love the osprey photo, the stories about the Dentist office and the writings on the ceiling was interesting as well.
