I am still fascinated by the richness of Okinawan flora and fauna. Today at lunchtime, mainly due to the fact that all lunch options at the University include rice, noodles and so anathema to my no carbs diet, I stroll off to look at crawling things.
Down by the sea I have noticed the strangest creatures. They are fish but when they feel like it they scuttle up onto the land an eat a few crabs. I have no idea what they are but they are clearly Darwinian.
They seem to spend their time crunching up these little Fiddler Crabs.
As I walk back to my car, a beautiful and very large butterfly cavorts.
After work I stop off at my favorite dam, damn. There are baby Black Crowned Night Herons.
The small stuff is important.
