[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
About 27.5cm in the total length.
There is a brown part on the cheek though the body is covered from the head with a gray feather.

It lives a lot in the environment such as the hometown mountains and parks with the tree to some degree, and it is seen also in the city part. It preys on a lot of insect kinds in addition to fruits at the breeding time though it chiefly eats fruits.

This photograph is taking of the moment when it eats the nut of the persimmon.

Hello Mikio,
I must admit that it wasn't the bird, but the persimmon that captured my eye right off the bat. This is because I have a Persimmon tree growing in my yard which bears berries that I love to eat in the fall months.
The bird on the other hand is shown extremely well with excellent detail and beautiful colors. This is the first time I have ever seen this particular bird and you have done a fine job of capturing it's image. Well done!!

Mikio, congratulations on your most interesting and skillfully presented photo.

Hello Mikio,
such a lovely capture of the bird in its real action. The details are well seen and excellently presented. The deep blue sky is lively and the view with the half eaten fruit is exciting indeed.
Good use of existing light.
