Iris at the city park and Pheasant in front of my house;

*Irises at the City  Park  *
Irises taken this year at city park early this month. Sorry that it was a bit early for full bloom. But people more than I expected were enjoying the beauty♪  
I feel so lucky having this park in our city and appreciate the hard work of the staffs. Although it is rainy season now, we haven't blessed much rain at the moment.

Found a very little Bee on the iris flower.
Water Lily side

*Pheasant in front of my house*
Several days ago around 7 in the morning, my husband heard loud birdsong. We opened the window of the bedroom on the 2 floor. A male Pheasant was standing on the rock in the bush. How lucky I was it stayed for a while long enough to take photos♪ Facing front at first, then moved to show us the side.
Chirping you can hear is not from this bird; it has very loud song.

I happened to come across the other(?) pheasant several days before. 
As you can see, taken at the difference place.

  Thank you very much for stopping by ;
I always appreciate your sweet comments;

  1. Wonderful photos of this fantastic city park dear Miyako! The irises are gorgeous, impossible to pick a favourite. The pheasant has a very loud and ugly voice, hasn't he :) One strolled in my garden and woke me up in the mornings, but now he has moved out!

    Best greetings & hugs from Finland ❤︎

  2. Dearest Miyako,
    What an abundance of Iris flowers you show us here!
    And the Pheasant male was quite a surprise to observe that close.
    He is lovely.

  3. Fantastic Iris flowers!
    What an interesting bird to observe!
    Have a great weekend.

  4. The view at the park is incredible with beautiful irises! Amazing sea of flowers. The staff there must be working really hard to maintain and they should be proud! Water lilies are so beautiful, too. I’d love to visit there and stroll around :-)
    The pheasant is adorable! I wish you a wonderful new week, Miyako san xoxo

  5. Miyako - what a lovely setting for an iris garden. You are lucky indeed to have this Park in your city. I also like the water lilies - the mosaic is heavenly. And that pheasant - I think he was posing for you - a terrific model, and singer too! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday, my friend!
