I was touring Tokyo with my family in early spring looking for cherry blossoms. We were early and could not find any blooms. Someone suggested a park in one area of Tokyo where people had seen early blooms. We took the subway to this area and were delighted to see some trees in bloom. We were not the only ones excited about the cherry blossoms. A flock of Japanese White-eyes were collecting nectar from the blossoms. I was able to approach close enough for my 200mm focal length to capture the scene. The Japanese white-eye or warbling white-eye as it is also known is endemic to the Japanese Islands.
