The White-tailed eagle is considered on average 4th largest living birds of prey in the world.
The adult White-tailed eagle is a greyish mid-brown color overall.
All the bare parts of their body are yellow in color, including the bill, cere, feet, and eyes.
They spend much of their day perched on trees or crags, and may often not move for hours.
Steller's sea eagle is one of the biggest birds of prey. Its wigspan is about 2.5m. Their body is black overall and have yellow bills, feet and eyes.
They come to Japan(mainly Hokkaido) from Russia in winter, and eat frozen salmons in the river.
I gave it a second try of making ice candle. It turned out better than last time I made but cracking all over... Guess they are part of the art🤩
Will give it an another try and try a new creation made of ice!
Snowshoe hiking in Yakumo
Snowshoeing the uphill field and sledding at times. Take a break on the hill with a panorama view of the ocean. Nothing is better than warm coffee in the snow☕️
It is the best season of the year for snowshoeing.
Reservation at Yakumo Village.
Frozen ice candle holder❄
To make clear ice, it is the key to get rid of as much air as you can. To boil the water can remove tiny bubbles. The more slowly ice freezes, the longer any air bubbles have to escape into the air in stead of being trapped in the ice.
Tried to make a crystal clear ice candle though it didn't really turn out great...
Will try to make a better one🧐
If anyone of you have made ice candles, give me an advice👍
