Egret In The River

Egret in Meguro river

An egret walked in Meguro river

Shot in the city of Nakameguro, Tokyo.

The riverside of Meguro River is famous for the cherry blossoms. The embankment is concrete and it is difficult to feel the nature here on an average day. Yet the situation is completely changed when the cherry blossoms are in flower. Both sides of the river are decorated with many cherry blossoms. And nature exudes presence whether you like it or not.

It was in the middle of April when I came here. So the blossoms were making a personal statement. Everybody came here to see the blossoms were enjoying the cherry trees in full bloom. I felt the same way.

I happened to look at the water surface. I found an egret. At first, I thought it enjoyed the cherry blossoms like human beings. Yet it never looked up at the blossoms and kept watching the surface. It seemed to be absorbed in hunting. The egret was more interested in the practical over the aesthetic.
