Sparrows in the rice paddy etc;

Sparrows were enjoying Lunch
In the middle of this month, I found lots of sparrows having lunch in the rice paddy.  The scene almost made me feel worried about the crops :-)

Thanks to blogging, I had refreshing feeling even under the hot weather.


Hearing  our car, the ones inside the paddy suddenly flew away♪



On a different rainy day, they were having shower p:-)



Unidentified Flower 
Last week, this white flower (my first flower) was blooming sticking out from the fence.  I thought the shape of the flower looked a little like Spider Lily which we call "higan-bana,  Equinox flower". They bloom around equinoctial week.  But I couldn't identify the name.  

Still having trouble with a background issue, 'especially in preview'.  Too wide to see the width, using my old test page.  So sorry that I haven't  visited you.  Beside the Soba-guests, I tidied my many old clothes I haven't thrown (could't throw) away for many decades (*^.^*) Have a wonderful new week and Thank you very much for your sweet comments.

Linking this post to these pages and Thanks to all the link hosts;

Such great photos of sparrows having lunch! Looks like they were enjoying the buffet :-) And wow, there are so many of them dining! I can understand that you got little worried about crops haha :-) I hope they'll leave some for humans! Taking bath must be refreshing in the hot weather :-)
I have no idea what's the name for this flower, but it sure is very pretty! I hope someone here can identify. Sounds like you've been very busy. Take good care of yourself, Miyako san. Have a great new week!

Wonderful photos Miyako! Love that you captured them two different times, and in such numbers. Such a lovely orchid also.

So many sparrows in that rice paddy, how sweet they looked whilst taking a bath in a rain puddle though.
I can't identify your pretty flower, but it is lovely.
Great to see you back with me for MM again this week, take care dear lady.

The sparrows were enjoying the feast but I doubt the farmer would have been pleased. Beautiful flowers.

am glad I saw your very artsy capture of flowers sticking their head through the send (floral bliss) - beautiful! A Delightful post how all the birds flew away.
Now I see you linked to All Seasons - by now you probably know I skipped this week because I had too many things going on in the weekend and could not be on the computer:) See you back this coming Sunday on All Seasons and enjoy a lovely week!

Wow, I've never seen so many sparrows. I like how you've taken photos and posted photos within photos. Very interesting.

Dearest Miyako,
Well, those sparrows are indeed a nuisance for the farmer that tries to harvest rice! They're in huge volumes...
As for your flower, it is a pity that you didn't show the leaves clearly and is it a vine, growing up the fence? If so, it looks very much like this 5-petaled Clematis vitalba L.

Hoping this is helpful!
Sending you hugs,

How fun to watch the sparrows having lunch. I hope they left plenty of rice for others. The "spidery" looking plant is very pretty. Have a wonderful week.

Miyako, your photography is simply beautiful. I like the effect you used in the first photo. Birds are always so much fun to watch! Thank you for linking up today and have a lovely weekend.

Hello, I enjoyed the sparrow video and your photos. They are cute birds, there were so many on the field. The flowers are lovely. Your blog is looking pretty to me, I do not see a problem? Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

That is a lot of sparrows in a small area! It's fun to watch them in a puddle. I like the fring-y flower--how unique. Beautiful collages. Do you create those?

Hello Miyako! We have house sparrows here in the US that were brought from England many years ago. They tend to travel in flocks and are found everywhere here. They seem to be able to find food even in the city. Here they can use my bird feeders...I think the blog pagination looks good for my use...Michelle
