Yambaru Forest

Yambaru Forest

March 8, 2011

I haven’t had a chance to explore the woods in the north of Okinawa. It was too cold in the studio for us to stay working all day.

We took off to Yambaru Forest to enjoy the sun.

Yumiko appreciates the forest. The forest gives you what you need for free! Those are often dye material or food.

Watch out though, there are “Habu snakes” (poisonous)!

Strange arrangement! The flowers are blooming on the leaves?!

“…oh, no!  The eggs are gone!  Mongooses might have eaten them….”
