The Neverending Search for Grub(s) by 

It’s the season of birds over here. Meaning, it’s cold but nowhere near as cold as the north of Japan and Asia so we get a wide variety of stopover species, just when there are no leaves to hide in and the predominant color of the landscape is dun. This makes it almost ridiculously easy to pick out small birds which would otherwise be camoflaged, and is perfect for photographers. Saw these Great Tits (In Japanese, Shijuukara) searching for grubs in the nearby pond. Took little notice of me as they were all busy getting theirs. Had the luxury of being able to choose my shots for a change : )

Taken in Saitama, Japan.
