Girl's Day, "雛祭りHina-Maturi" on March 3rd is coming close. Local Handicraft Association called 'タンポポの会 Tanpopo no kai ' held this exhibition at the next city's department store. Kind of Annual Event and I am happy to be able to show their Beautiful Works through my page this year again.

Exhibition of Bamboo Works and Birds etc;



*Exhibition of Bamboo Works at the Nature Observation Park*
My husband's friend kindly sent us the article below about the Exhibition of Bamboo Works through sns. She (plays the drum in the band both involve) knew he who made dragonflies with bamboo wouldn't miss this Exhibition ;-)  This was the first exhibition of 89 years old man exhibited his works. My husband was taking a long time and really concentrated to observe the details of the works. Although he wished to know when he would be at the exhibition, we couldn't have the luck to see him.


And also many Praying Mantis.
I couldn't help but smiling to see him how he got concentrated ;-)


*Common Kestrel*
At the park, the staff told us about the Common Kestrel visiting there.
So sorry they were perching on the tree of the far opposite bank.
This is the picture page of this bird.
Every time we visit the park, we have the luck to see the Ospray. 

On our way home, a young boy (?) was practicing Acrobatic Bike Ride.
Took a couple of Pictures, Luckily we had a space to park for a while; Wished to take a video but didn't want to bother him. He sure looked really trained.
