Fairly shrimp

Hi there!

These are the pictures two years ago, but I was able to watch Fairy shrimp in the rice field near my home.
We call Fairy shrimp "HOUNEN EBI" in Japanese.
The meaning is a shrimp bringing a good harvest.

The Video clip is uploaded to Youtube.

Hi Jim, thanks for a comment.

Though there were these videos, I forgot to make links to Youtube.

Lot of cherry salmons were jamping over the water fall.

The daces which swam over algae of the light green were very fantastic.

The lamprey goes into the sand immediately. Therefore the photography was difficult.
