1/27/16 It was so cold and snowing heavily when I went to Homan River. The snow was falling so quietly, it felt like I was in a dream. I was hoping to catch a bird in slow motion flight, and a beautiful great egret (dai sagi) answered my silent wish. As I was walking along the river, the great egret flew off away from me, but then turned back heading into the wind and snow. Towards the end of the video, it flew up into the white expanse of snow and sky and vanished.
