Japanese summer flora and fauna

Gingko fruits are ripening already.

Japanese cicada - their sounds and songs are floating everywhere in the forests.

Curious little ferns on an old tree near a famous shrine.

Omnipresent: Giant bamboo.

Pastures grasslands around the Aso volcano area: I guess that some of these freely grazing horses may be eaten - raw horse meat (sashimi) is a local delicacy.

Semi - japanese cicada. Usually they try to escape if you get so close. This one might already be old and tired ...

One of the many dragonfly species ("tonbo") flying around in the summer breeze.
