The different seasons always brings out different animals and wildlife. In Japan you can always hear the song of summer from the cicadas and the rain during rainy season. After rainy season but before the heat of summer and the cicada is the time for the mountain pigeons. They can be heard all over even if you don't live near a mountain and are normally flying together in pairs.
I heard this one long before I saw it because it had yet to find a partner and singing his heart out. He was up a large tree through all the green needles on the look out for a bird to call his own. I love his striking feathers and that piercing red eye that was watching me. Most of all though is the texture of the brown bark on the pine tree in the background.
Thank you very much for reading.
